A trip to Jenolan Caves, without the price tag

On the way back from Boyd River Campground we took a detour through Jenolan Caves. Due to the Anzac Long Weekend rush, there was very limited parking. By limited I mean people were parking at the top of Jenolan Caves road and risking their lives by walking the whole way down to the entrance.

Here are a few things you should do that won’t cost you a thing – except petrol, fuel and the clothes that you will have to wear in public.

1. See the giant arch way


Just watch your head if you’re walking beneath it. Who knows, those rocks might get a little loose one day.

2. Take a stroll along the Blue Lake

FUN FACT: The water in the lake is blue because of the light refracted by dissolved particles of limestone in the water.


3. Take yourself on the self-guided Twilight cave tour

Instead of paying $35^ for a guided tour, why not take yourself on a self guided tour, where you can take your sweet time wandering around without a tour guide jabbering on about why there are things dangling from the roof.


4. Spot a rock wallaby

Seriously I dare you to try.


If you (somehow) get bored as you walk through the caves, try playing a game of ‘spot the rock wallaby.’

5. Climb the stairs to look over the cave below
