Book Now - Lucas Cave

This spectacular cave includes the most photographed limestone formation at Jenolan, 'The Broken Column' and displays a wide range of huge cave formations. If you have time to visit only one cave, the Lucas is one of our most amazing, offering variety, our highest and widest caverns plus a glimpse of the pure underground river.

Visitors walk several flights of stairs to gain access to the Lucas cave. But once inside, the walk becomes less strenuous. There are many rest stops where you can enjoy fantastic sights. If you have mobility difficulties, we recommend you view one of our easier caves.

The Lucas Cave's highest chamber, 'The Cathedral' (54 metres high), is often used as a unique wedding venue. This awesome chamber is reputed to have the best acoustics of any performance space in the world.

Average Duration: 1.5 Hour

Other Information

Jenolan Caves is currently working through the advice from the NSW Government regarding the phased easing of restrictions.

In keeping with these measures and our commitment to visitor and staff safety, we have now reopened our hotel, Chisolm’s Restaurant and Caves Café. To facilitate social distancing, we are limiting the number of people at Jenolan Caves House. Please book ahead, either online or by phone on 1300 76 33 11.

However, in keeping with measures to ensure our commitment to visitor and staff safety, our cave tours will remain closed.

We will continue to review as the NSW Government releases more information on the next phase of lifting restrictions.
