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 all ages, two tours are on offer, covering different parts of the cave system, depending on group size. Tour content can be tailored to school groups' requirements, and many outdoor educational caving groups include Careys Cave as part of their program.

Several 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. Unfortunately, there is currently nowhere to purchase food, but the surrounding valley has a number of beautiful riverside campgrounds that are excellent for a BYO picnic.
