Book Now - Imperial Cave

Cave features include 'The Sinkhole', 'Ridleys Shortcut' (with a story on how it got its name), 'Lot's Wife', the 'Alabaster Column' and the dramatic' Crystal Cities' which looks like an ancient fortress. And as its name suggests, the 'Shawl Cave' is filled with delightful cave shawls.

When the floor of the Imperial Cave was excavated in 1975, bones were discovered. The bones of a Tasmanian Devil (long extinct on the mainland) and a Wallaby are on display. As you walk through the cave, you can also see marine fossils embedded in the limestone roof and walls.

This tour includes an visit to the northern 'Jenolan Underground River', via a 66 step spiral staircase. This part of the tour is optional for less mobile visitors.

Average Duration: 1 Hour
