Jenolan Caves

Jenolan Caves
Tag 46 - 5.10.2013 Die Jenolan Caves („Jenolan-Höhlen“) sind eine Höhlengruppe im Weltnaturerbe Blue Mountains, einem Gebirgszug im australischen Bundesstaat New South Wales, circa 130 km westlich vom Zentrum Sydneys. Das Wort Jenolan bedeutet „hoher Berg“ in der Sprache der Aborigines vom Stamm der Gundungarra.
Es handelt sich bei diesen Höhlen mit einem Alter von 340 Millionen Jahren um die ältesten entdeckten offenen Kalkstein-Höhlen der Welt.

The Jenolan Caves (Tharawal: Binoomea, Bindo, Binda) are limestone caves located within the Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve in the Central Tablelands region, west of the Blue Mountains, in New South Wales, in eastern Australia. The caves and 3,083-hectare (7,620-acre) reserve are situated approximately 175 kilometres (109 mi) west of Sydney, 20 kilometres (12 mi) east of Oberon and 30 kilometres (19 mi) west of Katoomba.
The caves are the most visited of several similar groups in the limestone caves of the country, and the most ancient discovered open caves in the world. They include numerous Silurian marine fossils and the calcite formations, sometimes pure white, are noted for their beauty. The cave network is very large following the course of a subterranean section of the Jenolan River, with over 40 kilometres (25 mi) of multi-level passages, more than 300 entrances, and the complex is still undergoing active exploration. The caves are a popular tourist destination, with eleven show caves accessible to paying visitors and well lit.
The caves and conservation reserve are one of the eight protected areas that, in 2000, was inscribed to form part of the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Greater Blue Mountains Area. The Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve is the most westerly of the eight protected areas within the World Heritage Site. The reserve forms part of the Great Dividing Range. Quelle: Wikipedia

Danke, Ulrich, die Größe und Höher dieser Höhlen ist unbeschreiblich. Es gibt dort ca. 9 verschiedene Führungen, die jeweils zwischen 1 und 2,5 Stunden dauern. Wir haben dann nur den öffentlichen Teil angesehen, wollten ja noch bis Canberra fahren. LG Erika
