Wombeyan Caves


Approximately 65 kms. west of Mittagong in the Burragorang Valley, Wombeyan Caves is an extensive series of beautiful limestone caves.

Five of these have been developed for public inspection and are easily accessible on graded paths. Guided tours are available, or a self-guided tour can be taken through one of the caves by following the paths. The speleologically minded can take tours through wild caves by arrangement with the Caves Reserve Trust.

There are bushwalking tracks, where you can see the beauty of the bush and local fauna, facilities for camping, swimming, barbecues, and a kiosk for refreshments.

Overnight stays are available in units, vans, or a cottage.
