Crystals in Orient Cave, Jenolan Caves


We drove 180 kilometres from where we stayed in Sydney to Jenolan Caves that morning. The exact same day we visited the Echo Point Lookout. Same outfit, same everything. I'm glad I wore crocs as there's quite a lot of walking involved.

We had a quick lunch fix in a nearby cafe. Self-service bread, salad bar and breakfast station.

WOW!!! Look at those sparkling crystals behind me!
It was pretty chilling in the cave (around 15°C), as if we've walked into an air conditioned room.

It was an eye-opening experience. Very well worth the money we paid for I would say *thumbs up*
