Jewel Cave, Augusta

4.7
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Augusta
Witness the artistry of nature in Jewel Cave. On your guided tour of the four expansive chambers, you'll see straw stalactites billed as the longest in any tourist-accessible cave in the world. Thicker stalactites also reach for the floor of the cave, creating the illusion of a melting ceiling. The space inside is relatively open, and the path easy to negotiate. After you emerge from the cave, walk through the stand of towering Karri (eucalyptus) trees surrounding the site. The Preservation Centre here has interpretive information and a cafe. Tours run frequently. See Jewel Cave and all Augusta has to offer by arranging your trip with our Augusta trip itinerary maker.

  • Visited this cave 2 weeks ago. Have done most of Jenolan Caves. Guide said it was better and he was correct. Right up there This cave is so compact with great formations. Easy to do, nearly 500 steps
  • Fascinating, beautiful caves and walk-ways with a variety of geological features, stalactites and stalagmites. Awe inspiring with some areas lit up in colour. The guides were very knowledgeable and keen for everyone to learn something on their visit.
  • Stunning cave. Great infrastructure for tourists, but if you are not into going up and down stairs, don't even bother. The Cave is huge and you will be able to see everything a good cave has to offer: stalagmites, stalactites, straws and other amazing formations. I highly recommend to everyone who would like to know a little more about what happens underneath our beautiful land!
  • Been here last Nov during our stay at Dunsborough. Like most other limestone caves, Jewel Cave is an amazing natural phenomenal blessed with many geological formations which took millions of years to form. These ranges from stalactites, stalagmites as well as flow-stone and many more. We didn't had the chance and luxury of time to visit the other limestone caves within the region. As such, I am in no position to compare which of the caves is more worth visiting and weigh their value for money. (Yes the entrance to the cave is slightly steep). But if we were to put aside the comparisons and open our geographical lenses, Jewel Cave by itself is an amazing and awe-strucking place to be at.
  • I wasn't expecting how awesome this cave was. Breathtaking!
