Book Now - Orient Cave

Seeing is believing! The visual impact of the Orient’s huge, lavish chambers will take your breath away. Each seems richer than the one before, thickly draped with gorgeous crystal formations.

Your journey starts in the man-made shaft, the Binoomea Cut. Discover ‘Bat End’, with ‘Cleopatra’s Curtain’ and ‘Cleopatra’s Couch’.

Stand in the ‘Persian Chamber’, surrounded by an ancient landscape of stalagmites and stalactites, including the ‘Pillar of Hercules’, Jenolan’s tallest stalagmite. From the bottom of ‘The Well’, gaze far up to the ‘Commonwealth Dome’.

In the ‘Egyptian Chamber’ see the ‘Frozen Nile’, ‘Egyptian Wall’, ‘Egyptian Curtains’ and the perfect, much photographed ‘Egyptian Shawl’.

In ‘Upper and Lower India’, see wonders such as ‘The Medusa’, ‘the Menagerie’, ‘the Guides Trousers’ and the famous ‘Indian Canopy’. Finally gaze upon the enchanting ‘Crystal Basin’, which fills, on occasion, with pure water, of the palest blue. An experience you won’t forget.

Although children under age 6 are free of charge, please remember to book a ticket for them.

While you are booking this cave tour, you can also take the opportunity to book high tea, Chisolm’s lunch, dinner and even accommodation, for a getaway to remember.
