A Trip to Jenolan Caves. [CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — Southern Star — 9 January 1901

A Trip to Jenolan Caves. By 'Citizen' [For the Southern Star]   [Conclusion]   Our first inspection was of the     Lucas Cave - the entrance to all   the caves are under the Grand Arch. After climbing some hun-   dreds of steps through dark pas-   sages we come to a large opening or rather excavation - solid rock on   every side, above and below. From the ceilings are suspended stalactites caused by the percolation of water from above. After centuries of constant dripping, a stalagmite is   formed on the floor of the cave     which, in time, meets the stalactite thus forming a column. It is esti-   mated that a stalactite forms at the rate of one-eighth of an inch in 35   years, and as many of these columns   are twenty feet in length it will be seen that millions of years must have been taken in their f...
