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 .

  • This was the second of 3 caves that we visited whilst on holiday with our Australian family. It was part of an offer for 1,2,3 or 4 caves - the more you visited the better the deal. So different from ...  more »
  • We choose the Jewel cave as it is the most recent found. As we come from the peak district in the UK we thought we had seen it all. Well worth a visit to see the one hole where it was found and the di...  more »

  • Jewel Cave was amazing. Adventure starts and ends in at the gift shop (as always), however once the guided tour start things get exciting. We successfully completed the cave with three children under 7 in tow with no problems. Entry to the cave is gained through a man made entrance as the original entrance was little more than a hole in the ground. From there the walk consists of steel walkways and lot and lots of stairs. Amazing cave formations can be seen at all stops and at one point they even put on a light show. For those (kids) that simply have to touch something they have an item at one point that you can touch (and it glows). Summing Up...Best cave we've been in. A++
  • A good recommendation to bring along kids. Kid will learn and explores the formations in the cave with clear explanations from the cave guide. No doubt it dark o there but it no barrier to walk it secured with all the necessary. Few parts of our tour there were neon light display.
  • Excellent cave. We think best of the main 4x popular caves we visited in our travels. Well worth it.
  • From all the caves around the area this was my least favourite. Why? Because the name doesn't fit at all. Why did they name this cave jewel? To build up people's expectations to only have them get really disappointed? Save your money just go to Mammoth cave or Lake cave instead.
  • Initially I thought the admission fee was a little steep. After the tour it was money well spent. The Cave Guide conducted the tour in a detailed, entertaining and world-class manner.
