Book Now - River Cave

It features the underground ‘River Styx’ which appears as pools of blue water, including the ‘Pool of Reflections’. This is a deep, illuminated underground lake, whose almost motionless surface produces spectacular reflections.

You will see the huge 'Queen Esther's Chamber', magnificent shawls, such as the ‘Giant Shawl’, and many famous formations, including the ‘Minaret’ (a spectacular stalagmite), ‘Grand Column’ (biggest column at Jenolan) and the ‘Queen's Canopy’.

In 2010, the River Cave tour was revitalised using the latest lighting technology, enabling you to see the cave formations as they have never been seen before. The environmentally friendly lighting system uses less electricity and minimises heat output, conserving the sensitive cave environment.

This tour includes 2 high, steep steel ladders.

Average Duration: 2 hours
