#GOBLUE #STAYANIGHTORTWO

Discover the Blue Mountains, Sydney’s backyard playground.

A World Heritage-listed wilderness where ancient rock formations cast their golden glow over vast canyons carpeted in eucalypts.

A natural wonderland where waterfalls plummet into valleys clad with rainforest, and breathtaking views stretch to the hazy blue horizon.

A region where quaint, historic villages nestle amongst trees painted with the colours of the seasons, and creativity is inspired by the bounty of nature.

Experience wonders at Scenic World, where the glasstopped carriages of the Scenic Railway take you on a heartstopping ride into the depths of the Jamison Valley;  take a bushwalk along clifftops to spectacular lookouts; and discover unique cultural experiences, from ancient Aboriginal sites to modern street art.

Relax and take a stroll through the World Heritage listed National Park, or perhaps indulge in a slow lunch with a great glass of wine – there are so many choices, you’ll wish you’d stayed longer!

Now is the time to visit and see what makes this place so special.

Don’t miss this amazing unique experience world rhythmic dance party event!

Rhythm Hunters are back again with their biggest show of the past years, with Rhythm Underground's return at The Jenolan Caves.

Rhythm Hunters have held eight concerts in the arch, and the event has seen 4000+ people to witness Frenetic Shamanic Dance, Japanese Shakuhachi Flute Master Riley Lee, thunderous Japanese drums, traditional music from Indonesia, electronic beats, drum and didge with Wild Marmalade and of course the enigmatic percussion master Nicky Bomba. It‘s like an organic dance party in the largest underground caves systems in the world.

Rhythm Hunters are a dynamite force combining music from Indonesia, Japan, West Africa and Australia. Cutting edge physical drumming, subtle electronics, western horns, Asian flute, tuned bells, synth effects, deep grooves and ethereal soundscapes combine, making them one of Australia’s most exciting music groups.

The ‘Wow’ factor comes from the dramatic physical movement spectacle originally influenced by Taiko drumming.

Rhythm Hunters new world tribal music has a reverence and a love of tradition that transcends age and genre. Incorporating power, pizzaz, funk, innovation and old school discipline that is delicately channelled into their irresistible sound and sweet Indo-Pacific Grooves.
