The Jenolan Caves

9 augustus 2016


The Jenolan caves are the world’s oldest and Australia’s most impressive caves. Made of Limestone, they are recorded to date back at least 340 million years. They are located in the Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve, west of the Blue Mountains in Eastern Australia, near the town of Oberon. The Jenolan caves are a major tourist attraction in the area, there are in total 11 caves open to visit – and they are open every day of each year!

You can discover several marine fossils and calcite formations, and you can see several underground rivers while walking through around 40 kilometers of passages and with over 300 entrances.

There are several tours, which run daily (both guided day and night tours), and you can also go adventure caving. There are also many events happening year around in the caves such as concerts and various public events.

When you exit, make sure that you keep on the lookout for wildlife! In this region, you can sometimes see some native wildlife including kangaroos and wallabies!

Furthermore, don’t forget to check out the Blue Lake! The blue lake is – as its name says – lake with bright blue water. The water is naturally colored by the refraction of light upon the limestone deposits and bedrock. You can go on a Blue Lake River tour, which is a 2.6Km walk meaning that it usually takes between 1 and 2 hours. On the walk, you will see various waterfalls, bridges, picnic areas and much more, through a deep forest. There are also many more trails and walks you can go on around the area.
