Childhood excursion favourite the Jenolan Caves has been around since basically forever so it's rather exciting to hear that the limestone cave system is getting a shiny new upgrade. 

The NSW Government has announced renovations to Jenolan Caves that will give tourists unique access to the amazing landscape, lake and wildlife that surround the ancient caves system. 

Funding from the government is set to focus on three major programs:

  • upgrading the Blue Lake area (pictured above)
  • building the Binoomea Track and Inspiration Point lookout
  • building the Jenolan Caves Gateway Centre

The new visitor facilities will allow visitors to get up close to the lake for platypus viewing, environmental education and recreation purposes.

Construction is expected to begin by December 2018, with works completed by December 2021.
