STORMS that lashed the region on Wednesday have caused further pain for Jenolan Caves with rock slides and debris closing roads in and out of the historic venue.
Both Jenolan Caves Road and Edith Road were closed near the entry points of the precinct.
A spokesperson for Transport for NSW confirmed that rainfall over the past two days had caused some minor landslips and debris on the roads to and from Jenolan Caves, with examinations of the area set to continue.
"Geotechnical investigations will be carried out at The Two Mile and Five Mile sections following more rain overnight," the spokesperson said.
"The Five Mile section from Duckmaloi Road to Caves House is now open, however the Two Mile section from Caves House to Edith Road will remain closed until the end of Thursday for clean up with local access only.
Clean up includes removing debris from the road, checking drainage structures and a slope stability inspection."
Crews were able to open Jenolan Caves Road on Wednesday night allowing staff and visitors to enter the site on Thursday morning, however Edith Road still remained closed forcing travellers to detour where required.
Heavy rains that followed caused flooding and massive landslides in the area, closing roads and causing widespread damage to buildings and the natural environment.
Closure due to COVID-19 restrictions caused further pain for Jenolan Caves, however, the restrictions have allowed a massive cleanup and rejuvenation of the site.
Jenolan Caves visitor experience manager Amy Korfias said they were excited ahead of what was expected to be a busy Christmas season.
"With restrictions easing and work on Blue Lake finalised we have been able to lift the number of caves we have open to five, along with increasing capacity, which allows us to run tours at approximately 50 per cent capacity," she said.
"While tour groups are smaller it actually allows an amazing boutique experience.
"We have also been able to increase the number of tours we are running in an effort to accommodate all our visitors.
"As part of our COVID-safe plan and due to limited capacity, visitors are highly encouraged to pre-book tours and take advantage of our hospitality packages that include food and accommodation."
