Book Now - High Tea and Cave Tour

Every day, we serve delicious High Tea, upstairs in historic Jenolan Caves House hotel, in Chisolm's Restaurant, which was built in 1926, in the Art Deco style. Our creative chef has put together a delicious High Tea menu which includes sweet treats, scones with jam and cream, trimmed sandwiches, savouries, and tea or coffee. For adults, there are 2 prices, so for a few dollars more, you can enjoy a glass of sparkling wine! Also, for children up to age 12, we offer a lower priced selection. High Tea is a delight! Enjoy it with friends or family.

Also, if you are of average fitness, you can experience a fascinating cave tour, as part of a small, exclusive group.
