Jenolan Cave Australia Orient Main Chamber

The grand chamber of the Orient Cave at Jenolan Caves is enormous and filled with truly spectacular formations. You can see just about every kind of cavern rock formation here, all brilliantly lit with LEDs that the guide controls by a remote.

If you had time to see only one cave this is the one I would recommend. It is probably the most beautiful cavern in the world.

The Jenolan Caves are in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, Australia. The caverns are the most popular tourism destination in New South Wales with over 250,000 visitors a year.

It is about a 3 hour trip by car or you can go by train and bus. For details on Jenolan Caves visit www.jenolancaves.org.au

There are no kangaroos in Austria.

We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in!

Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth.

The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party.

This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality.

The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself!
