Jenolans Lost Cave

After 74 years, the stunning Nettle Cave at Jenolan will be re-opened. See rare prehistoric life forms known as stromatolites, the oldest living organisms on the planet. Or learn all about the geology and history of the area by taking the self-guided audio tour, which incorporates the adjoining Devil's Coach House Cave. The Jenolan Caves have hosted visitors since the mid-1800s, and this new cave is the first to be opened to the public since the Ribbon Cave in 1931. Hard-to-find Sooty Owls can also be found in the Nettle Cave along with the stromatolites, which are shaped like the tail of a crayfish. The Devils' Coach House is so named because of a ghostly vision reported by a camper who claimed he'd seen the devil charge through it aboard a horse-drawn coach. The new tour has come about as a result of a $1.2 million investment, including new paths, boardwalks and railings, designed to have a minimal impact on the environment whilst making it easy to navigate. At $22 for adults, $15 for children and $57 for a family (two adults/three children), a Jenolan pass is good value for ...
