The Hon. Shayne Mallard MP has announced a new international ‘sister park’ for Jenolan Caves. “A historic sister park partnership between The Jenolan Caves Conservation Trust and Zhijindong Caves Global Geopark was recently signed by Bob Conroy, Administrator of the Jenolan Caves Conservation Trust on a visit to the spectacular karst landscape in Guizhou Province in south-west China,” Mr Mallard said. Mr Conroy said Jenolan Caves is very proud to have established the partnership with Zhijindong Caves Global Geopark.

“We look forward to sharing information and management practices, receiving delegations and greater numbers of visitors from China and negotiating possible staff exchanges,” said Mr Conroy.

Zhijindong Caves Global Geopark is an area of about 17,000 hectares and the caves are ranked as the most beautiful in China.

The Zhijindong Caves boast the largest and most numerous caverns in the world with a grand array of very impressive stalagmites and stalactites including high columns, flowstone, helictites and fossils.

Both the National and Provincial Governments of China strongly believe that encouraging tourism through improving infrastructure, upgrading visitor facilities and protecting nature, will lead to sustainable economic growth in this part of China. As a result, there has been a massive investment in new airports, major highways and bullet trains, which is starting to benefit regional economies and encouraging greater numbers of domestic and international tourists to this scenic part of regional China.

“The sister park relationship with China will further enhance the attraction of Jenolan Caves to the burgeoning Chinese tourist market.”

“The arrival of the Western Sydney Airport in the coming years will further open the Blue
Mountains and Jenolan Caves to Chinese tourists and to the related jobs and business growth” Mr Mallard concluded.
