¿De qué se trata?

Set in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Jenolan boasts an Australia's large and spectacular cave system with some very old caves. With the fewest stair steps, the Imperial is Jenolan's easiest cave tour, a memorable experience for all ages.

The Imperial is regarded as Jenolan's least strenuous cave, with only 358 stair steps, and the tour guide takes visitors into this cave at an easy pace.

The Imperial is one of the first caves to be discovered at Jenolan, in 1879. The first large cavern is known as the 'Woolshed', due to the strangely fluffy appearance of the stalactites.

Wide, level passages bring the group to the 'Sinkhole' where the bones of a Tasmanian Devil, long since extinct on the Australian mainland, are on display.

The group passes 'Ridley's Shortcut' and into the 'Shawl Cave' featuring several large and impressive crystal shawl formations.

At the end of the 'Shawl Cave' the passageway narrows and a few steps bring the group to a tall, pure white stalagmite named 'Lots Wife'.

The 'Crystal Cities' is a huge crystal rim pool formation - a beautiful, unforgettable sight.

Finally, the group has the option of descending a winding staircase to view the pure water of the underground river - lots of photo opportunities here!
