Set in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Jenolan is Australia's most spectacular cave system, the largest cave system in Australia (that is open to the public) and is 340 million years old - ranking it amongst the oldest caves on Earth. Delicate and not often shown, Jenolan's Ribbon Cave is a narrow gallery of unusual features that you see up close.
What You'll Get
Due to the delicate environment of this cave, the Ribbon Cave tour takes groups of only 8 people (no young children) and runs infrequently.
Visitors enter the Ribbon Cave via the beautiful Orient Cave. This provides a very brief opportunity to glimpse the Orient's legendary formations.
Then, visitors enter the delicate Ribbon Cave, which is only 60 metres long. This cave is a unique experience. It is filed with exquisite formations. Also, its historic features let you ‘step back in time’, providing a completely different atmosphere to the Orient Cave.
Its low, narrow passages let you closely examine amazing formations, including ‘helictites’, 'ribbon helictites', crystal straws, spar crystal, ‘rim pools’ and the exquisite beauty of the ‘lily pads’.
