Where Can You Escape From February's Heat?

Due to the mysterious insulating properties of limestone, the caves at Jenolan are always 15 or 16 degrees celcius, regardless of the surface temperature.

There is nothing like walking into a cool cave on a blistering hot day!  15 degrees may sound even a bit too cool, but it's actually perfect for walking and climbing stairs.  Jenolan Caves is a magical place to get fit, while escaping the oppressive heat of February. 

And here is a little secret for keeping cool at Jenolan in February.  If you walk past Jenolan's Blue Lake (don't swim there, as it's a platypus habitat), and follow the river downhill a short distance, you will come to a waterfall above a little swimming hole. Very few know about it.
