The Chifley displays all the stunning limestone formations for which Jenolan is famous, including delicate straws. One of Jenolan’s best examples of exquisite ‘spar’ crystal can be seen in the Chifley.
One of our shorter and less strenuous cave tours, the Chifley amazes young and old. This tour does not retrace its path, so you always wonder what is around the corner.
The Chifley has a fascinating history, and was the first cave in the world to be lit with electric light – as early as 1880. In fact it was one the earliest places in the world to use light bulbs – remarkable at the time.
Two of its beautiful grottoes are still illuminated with historical coloured lights, a reminder of its unique heritage – children find these fascinating.
