¿De qué se trata?
Set in a World Heritage Area, Jenolan boasts an Australia's large and spectacular cave system with some very old caves.. Stand in the awe-inspiring Temple of Baal Cave, and marvel at the astonishing formations in this citadel of reflection and peace.
There are 288 stair steps in this cave. Although is regarded as 'strenuous', it can be done by the average visitor.
The tour guide takes the group up a hillside to the entrance to the 'Binoomea Cut', a man-made shortcut to the Temple of Baal Cave. Following this long, narrow tunnel, the group enters the Temple of Baal Cave.
The guide leads the group down a long winding stair, known as 'The Dragon's Throat'. This takes the group to the floor of the cave, into a large chamber, known as 'Moloch's Grotto'. This chamber boasts a wide variety of decoration including the only display of cave pearls, or oolites, at Jenolan.
Visitors get a good chance to inspect helictites up close. The tour group moves into the main chamber, one of the largest chambers at Jenolan. They inspect this huge chamber from 5 different vantage points, and each stop affords the chance to see something new. Much of the decoration is brilliant orange although the chamber is dominated by the white Angel's Wing, one of the largest cave shawls in the world.
Young children are not allowed in this cave, so visitors can immerse themselves in its strangely contemplative atmosphere.
