The Devil's coach house Sequestered deep in the mountains, isolated from major roads and townships, there is profound mystery, history and culture to the whole Jenolan area and I love to visit when I can. <br />
<br />
The famous caves and associated land cover 3,000 hectares situated in the Central Tablelands region, west of the Blue Mountains here in New South Wales. <br />
<br />
At 340 million years old, the caves are the most ancient discovered open caves in the world. The word Jenolan is believed to be an indigenous word for &#039;high place&#039;, derived from the Tharawal word, Genowlan. Jenolan Caves are within the lands of the Burra Burra people, a clan group of the Gundugurra Nation and this is a sacred space for First Nation communities. <br />
<br />
The Devil&#039;s coach house is a dynamic and dramatic space which can be seen when walking one of the many tracks in the area. <br />

  1. Amazing place! Posted 10 days ago
    1. It is. Even better when you strike lucky and have it almost all to yourself (say, off season, very early morning). One can truly see and feel why our First Nation communities believe it is a sacred, special place. Posted 10 days ago
