Jenolan Caves Birding and Dining

Tue 15 May 2018 12:00am

Michael Robbins

Six people have expressed interest in joining me (Michael Robbins) on my May 2018 break at Caves House, Jenolan.
The plan for May 15 to 17 is firming up, although numbers will remain uncertain until close to 14 May.  Some people have already decided they’ll stay an extra day, so we’ll wait until about the beginning of May to firm up car sharing arrangements.
The refurbishment of the Bistro will be finished and lunches and breakfast can be bought there.  Chisholm Restaurant, which is the only place to eat dinner unless you drive into Oberon, will be operating in May but seating maybe in the function room if refurbishment of the grand dining room has started by 14/5/18.
We’ll aim to leave Canberra at about 9 am on Tuesday 15/5/18, the exact time we get away will depend on car sharing arrangements, and we’ll plan to stop at a couple of places on the way to Jenolan Caves, including a lunch stop.
We’ll spend all of Wednesday the 16th doing walks around the Jenolan Caves area.  If anyone would rather do a cave tour than join a walk that’s fine. One walk will definitely be to the old playing fields and beyond, but as it will be an out and back walk, if anyone wanted to stop at the old playing fields and wait for us there that will be fine. On Thursday 17th the plan is to visit Kangangra Walls with probably one other stop on the way back to Canberra.
It is highly unlikely we’ll have a large enough group for a group booking.  Therefore it will be up to individuals to book their choice of accomodation from one of the three level of room in Caves House, or a bed in the backpacker ‘lodge’ or a room in the motel style unit. Please make sure to let Michael (mrobbins at know if you’re interested in joining him and haven’t already done so.
