Excerpt from The Jenolan Caves: An Excursion in Australian Wonderland

The following historical and descriptive account of the Jenolan (formerly called the Fish River) Caves was written for the Sydney Jllbrrzzhg Herald. By the kind permission of the proprietors of that journal (messrs. John Fairfax and Sons) and, at the request of numerous correspondents, it is now republished. The author is con scious, however, that neither tongue, nor pen, nor pictorial art can convey an adequate idea of the magnificence and exquisite beauty of these caves. Words are too poor to express the feelings of admi ration and awe which are experienced by those who wander through the marvellous subterranean galleries embellished with myriads of graceful and fantastic forms of purest white alternating with rich colour and delicate tints and shades. Of all the caves in New South Wales those at Jenolan are the most beautiful, and well-travelled men admit that they are unrivalled in any other part of the world As they are so little known this book may be interesting, and serve to give some impression concerning geological transformations and the slow processes of Nature in the production of works at once grand, ornate, and unique.
