The River Cave - Jenolan's Underworld Labyrinth
The River Cave is a bit more strenuous than our other show cave tours. But the experience is worth the extra effort.
You start this fully guided tour through the last chambers of the Lucas Cave. The first main chamber of the River Cave is the 'Tower Chamber', with the huge stalagmite known as 'The Minaret'. Moving deeper into the mountain, you see the 'Pool of Reflections'. This large, illuminated pool of pure, still, blue water produces a multitude of perfect reflections. It is breath-taking.
Next, you stop to admire the 'Queens Canopy', a large canopy of flowstone that extends out from the cave wall. Then, you enter 'Queen Esther's Chamber', where the roof and walls are completely covered in stalagmites and stalactites - awe-inspiring! You continue to the 'Mons Meg Chamber' with its enormous, stunning centrepiece, then 'Olympia', a chamber dominated by the 'Grand Column'. Finally, as you head back, you pass through the spooky 'Mud Tunnels'. The River Cave has everything.
Make sure you wear sensible, non-slip shoes on this tour - no short skirts or high heels!
