On the way back from Boyd River Campground we took a detour through Jenolan Caves. Due to the Anzac Long Weekend rush, there was very limited parking. By limited I mean people were parking at the top of Jenolan Caves road and risking their lives by walking the whole way down to the entrance.
Here are a few things you should do that won’t cost you a thing – except petrol, food and the clothes that you will have to wear in public.
1. Feast your eyes upon the Giant Arch Way.
2. Take a stroll along the Blue Lake.
FUN FACT: The water in the lake is blue because of the light refracted by dissolved particles of limestone in the water.
3. Take yourself on the self-guided Twilight cave tour.
Instead of paying $35^ for a guided tour, why not take yourself on the
lonely self guided tour, where you can take your sweet time wandering around without a tour guide jabbering on about why there are things dangling from the roof.
4. Spot the rock wallaby.
Seriously I dare you to try.
5. Climb the stairs to look over the cave below.
So go on, leave your wallet at home and take yourself to Jenolan Caves.
*Don’t leave your wallet, that’s plain stupid.
