What to Expect
There are approximately 1,000 stair steps on this tour, so it is regarded as 'strenuous'. The tour starts from the 'Binoomea Cut', a man-made shortcut into the Orient Cave. Following the long tunnel, the group enters the Orient Cave via a small but beautiful chamber known as 'Bat End'.
The group heads upstairs to the dramatic 'Persian Chamber'. Many consider this the most stunning chamber at Jenolan. The walls and roof are completely draped in long calcite crystal formations - stalagmites, stalactites, columns, shawls and straws - in breathtaking array. The height of the chamber is just over 30m. The tallest stalagmite at Jenolan is in this chamber.
The group descends into 'The Well', from where they can view the 'Persian Chamber' from a deeper perspective.
Then, they move into the 'Egyptian Chamber', home to the second largest shawl at Jenolan. As the tour descends from the Egyptian Chamber, they pass a small, but exquisite chamber known as 'The Jungle'.
Finally, the group comes to 'The Indian Chamber', which is viewed from two levels. From the top level they get an excellent view of one of our most famous formations, 'The Indian Canopy'. At the bottom of the chamber the group views 'The Crystal Basin', a large, beautiful formation which sometimes fills with pure water.
From the Orient Cave, the tour moves into the labyrinthine River Cave, to see some of its most famous formations, including the awe-inspiring ‘Pool of Reflections’ Then, the group is lead into the massive Lucas Cave, to see some of its main caverns.
