Yarrangobilly Caves

The largest cave, called South Glory, with its lofty chambers, presents a unique opportunity to explore on a self-guided tour. The other caves, including Jersey and Jillabenan, are guided Discovery tours that run three or four times daily (closed Christmas Day). Tickets can be purchased from Yarrangobilly Caves Visitor Centre.

Come properly prepared for adventure: sturdy, enclosed shoes are a must and the caves are very cool, so bring a jacket even in the warmest weather. You’ll also want to bring your swimmers because once you’ve explored what’s below ground, you can take the short walk along Yarrangobilly Caves - River walk to the thermal pool above ground. Year-round, it stays at a toasty 27ºC, and there’s something quite magical about paddling here in the midst of winter when snow can lie around its edges.

There are also some other great walks, plenty of wildlife and birds to admire, and the beautifully restored Yarrangobilly Caves house or the the modern and spacious Lyrebird Cottage, where you can stay overnight.
