Castle Cave is one of the Yarrangobilly caves at Kosciuszko National Park. It is partly developed, there are some concrete staircases, but it has no light and mostly there are no trails. However, it is an easy semi-wild cave which is visited on guided cave trekking trips with small groups. The tours are offered daily during Christmas and Easter, by prior arrangement the rest of the year.

The cave is reached on a trail named Castle Cave walk which starts at Glory Cave carpark at Yarrangobilly Caves Road. The trail is 1.6 km long above the Yarrangobilly River, passing Glory Arch and South Glory Cave. The walk to the cave, the cave visit and the walk back take around 1 to 1.5 hours.
