¿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. The River Cave is extra effort, but worth it - mind-bending labyrinth, awe-inspiring chambers and pure water.

This is one of the longest tours at Jenolan, with 1,298 stair steps, including 2 steep ladders.

Visitors start the tour by passing through the last chambers of the Lucas Cave. Then, the first main chamber of the River Cave is the 'Tower Chamber', which presents an excellent photo opportunity with the huge stalagmite known as 'The Minaret'.

Moving downwards, the group sees the 'Pool of Reflections', the highlight of the tour for many. This large, illuminated pool of pure, still, blue water produces a multitude of perfect reflections. It is breath-taking.

The groups stops to admire the 'Queens Canopy', a large canopy of flowstone that extends out from the cave wall. Then, they enter 'Queen Esther's Chamber', where the roof and walls are completely covered in stalagmites and stalactites - awe-inspiring!

The group continues on, to see the 'Mons Meg Chamber' with its enormous centrepiece, then 'Olympia', a chamber dominated by a large column, known as the 'Grand Column'. As the group starts heading back, they pass through the spooky 'Mud Tunnels'.
