Around 3h drive from Sydney, but worth the visit. The size of the caves and the stone formations (stalactites, stalagmites) are really impressive. The blue lake outside the caves is a must seeing as well, its colour is amazingly blue. Prices around $40-$55 per adult/...More

What a fascinating place. We loved our tour in the Ribbon cave today. Our guide, Gordon was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his job. We now want to go and stay at the caves and do more tours!! Worth every cent. A truly memorable experience.

Travelling from our temporary holiday base in Katoomba, it took 75 minutes to reach the Caves, including an 8km drive down the very narrow and twisty road, the only way in and out. The trip was very worthwhile, as we booked on two tours over...More

We traversed through the Lucas Cave. A lot of steps but plenty of breaks along the way so you don't feel like you've done over 900 steps. The views were just amazing and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the geology of the caves...More

There was a 2 year old on our tour yesterday of the diamond and imperial caves. Her parents didn't carry her at all. It's pretty flat and she used the rail on the steps.

Probably the Diamond Cave which includes the Imperial Cave, There are steps but they are optional, you can wait whilst the rest of the group does that extension as they double back. The Guides would give you advice online... More
