Jenolan NSW 2790

Note that Jenolan Caves is located at the bottom of a steep valley. The main road from Sydney is open to downhill (arriving) traffic 24 hours a day. However, it is closed to uphill (departing) traffic between 11.45 am and 1.15 pm. This allows arriving coaches more room on the road. You can still leave Jenolan during these times, via Edith Road, to Oberon. It is a steeper and narrower road, but is fully sealed and available 24 hours a day. Remember to be safe and have fun!
