Bebeah Garden, Mt Wilson Today we begin a tour of beautiful Mt Wilson. This very special village is tucked away in its own secluded space away from the bigger tourist towns. It has no shops but plenty of life because unlike other parts of the mountains it has rich volcanic soil and high rainfall, perfect for both lush natural rainforest and grand exotic gardens. And it's perfect for romance especially at this time of year when the gardens are turning on their autumnal splendour. There are photographs at every turn, we are going to be here a while.
Have a rest beside the beautiful Blue Lake made this colour from the dissolved limestone. Though the caves were apparently not so restful for Luke White, a cattle thief who spent a night in the cave after a drinking binge, and claimed he had seen the devil himself charge through on a coach drawn by six horses -- hence the Devil's Coach House (to answer Julie's question on the previous post). We are leaving the caves today. Disappointed that we didn't go inside the caves? You can see some from one of my earlier visits or take a look at this video of the Orient Cave by the Sydney Morning Herald.
Most of the caves are an energetic walk some climb high and some go low to the watery depths. Today's photo shows the exit to Nettle Cave which is self-guided tour. While its not the best of the caves it is offered free with a ticket with one of the other tours.
Limestone formation, Imperial Cave, Jenolan Caves According to wordnetweb a statue is a a sculpture representing a person or animal. Now I know this isn't a person or animal but pay a visit to Jenolan Caves and you'd be amazed at the fanciful creatures the guides see in the stalagmites and stalactites. And it's a great lead into our next Blue Mountains adventure which is to Jenolan Caves. Today city daily photographers are interpreting the theme Statues.
