Wee Jasper Caves

Go off-grid — and underground — to explore these limestone formations.

Wee Jasper is home to Careys Cave, a 400 million-year-old limestone cave network, filled with mysterious chambers, stalactites, stalagmites and pools. To wander through it, you'll need to jump aboard a tour, which takes place Friday–Monday at 12pm and 1.30pm. On weekends, there's an extra one at 3pm. You'll spend just over an hour inside, following an underground path that twists and turns and uncovering one wonder after another. There's also a makeshift lounge room, where you can kick back, relax and lose yourself in your surroundings. Plus, every now and again, the cave transforms into an epic concert setting with, of course, amazing acoustics. Keep an eye on the program over here. Wee Jasper is 80 kilometres — or a 90-minute drive – northwest of Canberra, in Yass Valley.
