On the 18th of April Hapsis and I visited the Jenolan Caves with the cunning plan of visiting two of the pay-to-enter caves (and the free one as well) all in the same day.
The Jenolan Caves (S33° 49.280′, E150° 01.141′, 814m) in New South Wales are among the oldest caves in the world. Australian geologists have estimated their age to be 340 million years, which places their origins in the Carboniferous Era.
The Orient Cave is one of ten caves that are open to the public, and the most highly decorated of them all. All tours are guided with the exception of the Nettle Cave/Devils Coach House tour. Fees apply.
