Erin, Hamish and I decided to go for a bit of a walk around Jarrahdene as there are a few bush walks that you can do. The site was orginally a Timber Mill dating back to the 1800s, so we decided to do the short loop around the historic mill site. There were some old remnants from this bygone era, but most of it has gone now. The walk amongst the trees was beautiful.
After Haim’s sleep we then headed to the Lake Cave at Boranup. This was originally discovered by a 16 year old girl named Francis Bussel who was out on horseback searching for lost cattle in 1867. The entrance to the Cave is quite amazing, there is a sunken forest in a large crater, called a Doline, and many, many stairs leading down to the cave. It was amazing to think of the people entering and exploring the cave orginally as they had to lower themselves down using ropes and explore the cave by candlelight!!! It would have been terrifying, but what an amazing discovery too. Incredibly beautiful. The cave itself is quite short, only 82 metres long. But you sit at the end of the cave and see a beautiful light show and also experience how dark the cave is when they switch off the lights.
After the Lake Cave tour we stopped at a lookout point on Caves Road to appreciate the beautiful Boranup Karri Trees.
