Jewel Cave, Augusta

4.8
#1 of 14 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. To visit Jewel Cave on your holiday in Augusta, and find out what else Augusta has to offer, use our Augusta day trip tool .

  • Great experience. Interesting tour and plenty of photo ops.Cafe on site. Be mindful that there will be lots of stairs , but we'll worth it if you can manage them.
  • Excellent place. Entry fee is a bit expensive. The guide was very knowledgeable. Camera with flash is essential. At some point the guide will turn off the lights, amazing experience, so dark that you can not even see your hands. Artificial lighting effect was attractive.
  • Best cave in that region. It is the largest with many nice formations with good lighting setup. Please take note that it will be a guided tour and you have to follow their timings. Great explanation provided by the guide.
  • One of the few caves you can visit in the south west of WA. The largest cave there with many fantastic formations and we'll thought of lighting to enhance the features of the cave. The tour was very good. Well worth the trip.
  • A great place to visit if you are in Augusta . Do travel further for there are so many awesome caves in this area which are all worth visiting. Going to Jewel cave has been a memorable experience not only for me but for my children as well who were quite in awe of the stalactites and mites . The tour was given in a very interesting manner and kept all visitors and tourists engaged. We were spell bound by the beauty and play of light and colours on the rock formations.
