    Wow! Beautiful! Here in Slovenia such Karst caves are very common. In fact, there are two caves that are only about 20 minutes away from where I live. Actually, the name Karst, which is used world wide for such caves, is ours, Slovenian, and it comes from our region called Kras, which was the first example of such a region described in scientific papers :-)

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/cobra_11] Caves are wonderful places eh ? This one is very accessible to the public (thus the railings).

    Always wanted to go here... One day.. Well captured David, would be amazing to see in person.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/philrettke] Yeah the photo does not do it justice. I've been going to Jenolan since I was around 12 or so. (long gaps between visits). Amazing place, definitely worth going.
    Next time we'll probably stay at Caves House, and spend a few days doing more of the caves.

    Yeah, Caves House is ... fun.
    Did a gig in Jenolan once. All my skins went floppy...

    been down a few caves myself, we have a fair share of them here, I dont mind as long as they are big, would never go pot holing though, the thought of wiggling around , squeezing through small gaps is not appealing, did it once - i was being born, thats experience enough thankyou !

    oh and yes spectacular caves and photo

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/apurdam] hehehe, can be a tad humid.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/33085391@N00] Yeah I tend to agree. Wriggling through tight spaces isn't my idea of fun. Besides, if you have to wriggle through, taking a camera becomes difficult.

    Nice capture Dave - 30 years since I visited here
    I didn't particularly enjoy the drive there, I wonder if the winding road is any better these day ...

    Awesome display. Nice colours.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/justinjensen] Pretty much. This is a flow formation that has formed shawls underneath. It's rather large and very impressive to behold in person.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/hsintailiu] They've just upgraded the lighting in this cave. Worked very well too, although there were a couple of hot spots due to the lights being more directed now.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/kathrine-carter] The drive is nowhere near as narrow and windy as I remember it. There's still about 8km of narrow windy section (the last leg), but the destination is more than worth it.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/flash-of-light] Aye, they've done a pretty good job if the lighting in these caves.
