Looking for ideas on Jenolan Caves tours from Sydney? In this segment from the Tour the World travel TV series, we join a fabulous day tour from Sydney to the gorgeous Blue Mountains with FJ Tours, taking in two key attractions – Jenolan Caves and Scenic World!

At Jenolan Caves, you’ll enjoy a fully guided tour of the magnificent Lucas Cave with a cave expert. The largest chamber — The Cathedral — is renowned for having perfect acoustics, and it’s often used for concerts and other musical events. Think of it as the oldest performance venue in the world!

Caves House at Jenolan Caves is a great spot to get a bite to eat following the cave tour. The guesthouse was built in the late 1800s and despite many renovations, it has retained most of its period features.

Next, you’ll head for Scenic World in the historic mountain township of Katoomba where you’ll have the opportunity to ride the world-famous Scenic Railway, Cableway and Skyway. All three rides are included in the cost of your tour. The historic Scenic Railway is the steepest passenger rail service in the world, while the Scenic Skyway travels 270 metres above the valley floor!
