The Jenolan Caves are a series of remarkable caverns in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia; 175 kilometres west of Sydney. They are the most celebrated of several similar groups in the limestone of the country being the oldest discovered open caves in the world[1][2]. They have not yielded fossils of great interest but the stalactitic formations, sometimes pure white, are of extraordinary beauty. Major portions of the caves have been rendered easily accessible to paying visitors and are well lit.
Jenolan Caves attracts over 250,000 visitors a year, making it the most popular tourist location in rural New South Wales.
  • Nine of the area's "dark caves" are open for regular tours and several more are available for special tours.
  • The Jenolan Caves are also the oldest open caves recorded by scientists.
