EXCITING NEWS!! Construction has begun.

The Wellington Caves team are excited to announce construction has begun on the new Visitor Experience Centre.

When visiting you will be able to see the progress of the build, before your tour departure. Once you have returned why not take a stroll across to the Osawano Japanese Gardens to enjoy a peaceful picnic or a visit to the Bottle house or Caves Wood Gallery and Gifts. 

The Wellington Caves are located 8km south of Wellington NSW. Guided tours are available to the Cathedral Cave, Gaden Cave and the Phosphate Mine. 

Be amazed by the beautiful calcite crystal formations like stalagmites, stalactites, columns, flowstones and coral.

Whilst touring the Phosphate Mine, visitors will be enthralled by the story of the mine and the megafauna bones it secretly holds within its muddy walls.

Accommodation, camping, kiosk, barbeques and the Osawano Japanese Gardens are also located at the Wellington Caves.
