You can explore the Wollondilly, Junction, Kooringa and Mulwaree caves on a variety of guided tours, and the Figtree Cave is regarded as the state's premier self-guided cave experience.
In 1865, Wombeyan became the first area in Australia to be reserved for the protection of caves and there are still structures dating from the early 1900s in some caves.
Wombeyan Caves is an easy drive from Sydney, Canberra and Wollongong, so it's a great place to escape to on a weekend getaway. You can bring your caravan, tent or motor home to camp out overnight or you can book into one of the cabins or the cosy Post Office Cottage. You might find you have some visitors to the campground, kangaroos can be quite inquisitive.
