Jenolan Caves Christmas Concert 2007

We had a wonderful time at the Jenolan Caves last weekend - exploring the Imperial Cave followed by an incredible carol concert in the Grand Archway with friends.
The children were from Lapstone Public School Choir - they did an amazing job despite being very tired by the end of the concert!

It wouldn't be a Christmas celebration without the story of the nativity; it doesn't matter how many times I watch it - it's just so beautiful.

Recognise Bonita from Play School?? (And some funny old guy in red...)

You can't get better acoustics anywhere in the world than at the caves - the sound is awesome. (Except if I was singing...)!

Caves House. Just being at the Jenolan Caves always reminds me of Matlock, in Derbyshire for some reason - a place I always enjoyed visiting.

It's hard to capture the wonder of the caves and all the incredible rock formations, and underground river which glowed a pale blue due to the chrystals. Our guide was very informative and told us some fascinating stories....don't want to spoil it for you - just visit the caves!!

The performers at the concert appeared in various spots right up in the grand archway - and with the special lighting and sound, added to the surreal atmosphere.

There was even a little Christmas market & musicians during the day which they are hoping will get bigger & better each year.
