Jenolan Caves, NSW
3.5 km (1.5 hrs )
Jenolan Caves are regarded as one of Australia's most spectacular cave systems. On this occasion I skipped the cave tours to instead explore the surrounding tracks. The first was a short walk through Grand Archway to Blue Lake, followed by a longer walk along the Jenolan River to the old hydro-electric power station. The last was a hike up to the impressive Carlotta Arch via the Devil's Coach House.
It was a pleasant day for a hike that I enjoyed very much, and for a long weekend holiday, surprisingly quiet on the tracks. Lots of people visiting the caves of course!
