Mammoth Cave, Margaret River
(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Step into a prehistoric world inside of Mammoth Cave. The main chamber is 500 m (1,640 ft) long and lies 30 m (98 ft) below the ground. On your self-guided tour, you'll see fossils of prehistoric animals discovered in the cave. The staff here provide an MP3 player and headphones to deliver information as you explore the ambient-lit caverns. The main chamber is wheelchair-accessible, but the other chambers contain stairs. The long path from the end of the caves back to the reception area passes through a swampy area, so bring insect repellent if you visit in summer.

  • We really liked the self guided function it allowed us to appreciate our surroundings at our pace. Highly recommended 
  • We visited Mammoth and Lake Cave together. Both excellent, but different. Mammoth Cave is high and wide, though not very long. It was quite quiet when we visited and there were only a few other visito...  more »
  • You can make it also as a self guided tour and you see lots of interesting things in it. At the end you have to go back on a short walking track through beautiful landscape and also over a little rive...  more »

  • Beautiful. It was raining so I thought it would be good to do something under cover - what is more under cover than a cave? Lots of steps but my five year old was fine with them.
  • Great cave experience, you're given an MP3 player you can use to listen to the audio recordings of the cave as you walk through with info about the cave. Place looks amazing inside and is well maintained and preserved. Neat little gift shop for your souvenirs too.
  • Beautiful caves. Though smaller than some, these caves have an incredible density of formations, and the audio about all of the fossils that were discovered here was super interesting. Definitely a unique cave and worth a visit!
  • After having just completed the Tour of the Lake Cave, this was our next natural progression. you are given an audio device with headphones and can listen along with your walk. The only trouble with this I found was that you generally walk a lot faster than the audio assumes, and for the most part I was long past something when it was mentioned on the audio. I gave up and just enjoyed the awesome natural beauty of the caves, and could easily imagine I was in Lord of the Rings going through the Mines of Moria, running from the Orcs. Accessibility wise, my 67 year old mother found it quite easy going - there are some stairs of course, but it is much easier than the Lake Cave to get around. Very much recommended when in Margaret River, and will work up and appetite, so make sure to fit in a winery or two on the way back!
  • Easy cave walk for my family (2 young children and 2 seniors). The audio guide was informative. Certainly worth the visit for us.
