Careys Cave is the closest limestone cave system to Canberra, located in the beautiful Wee Jasper valley about 50 kms from Yass.

Careys Cave is located in the beautiful Wee Jasper valley, about 50 kilometres from Yass and 80 kilometres from Canberra.

Set in a spectacular limestone landscape, Careys Cave features beautiful, naturally sculpted rock and a wealth of different cave formations. Access is down a flight of 30 steps, after which floors are mostly level with well-trodden and lit paths passing through various chambers. Suitable for ages 5 and over, two tours are on offer, covering different parts of the cave system, depending on group size. The tour content can be tailored to the requirements of school groups, and many outdoor educational caving groups include Careys Cave as part of their program.

A number of concerts are held in the caves throughout the year, as well as the occasional wedding. Outside, there is a covered area with tables and chairs, toilet facilities, and a small kiosk. Nearby is a cafe, open on weekends, and the surrounding valley has a number of beautiful riverside campgrounds.

To book a spot in one of the tours, please email – All visitors must wear masks consistently throughout the tour. Must be over 5 years of age.
