It has recently been announced that Jenolan Caves will be entering a Sister Cave agreement with Zhijingdong Global Geopark in Guizhou province, China.

Zhijingdong Cave Global Geopark is located in the west of Guizhou Plateau, in Zhijin County. The park is 170km2 in size.The Geopark consists of the Zhijingdong Cave, the Qijiehe River and Dongfenghu Lake,  three distinct landforms representing different processes of Karts development. These graceful karst land forms include caves, canyons and natural bridges. The area is typical, yet beautiful example of a karst plateau in China. Its unique natural scenery has important aesthetic value, showcasing the development of the earth's surface and underground karst.

Geo and National parks are the treasures and valuable resources of human society. To strengthen the protection and sustainable development of geological heritage, both cave systems have agreed to exchange knowledge, training and possibly staff - with many guides at Jenolan hoping for an exchange trip.
