Jenolan Caves were known to the local Aboriginal population for many thousands of years as Binoomea, "Dark places". Colonial involvement in the area began in 1838 with the first recorded 'discovery' by local pastoralist, James Whalan.
Today Jenolan is one of the most popular tourist destinations in country NSW, with over 250,000 visitors enjoying the wonders of the nine show caves each year, and an ever-increasing number entering into the world of adventure caving.
