Mammoth Cave, Margaret River

4.4
#2 of 9 in Parks in Margaret River
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.

    Although not a big cave, it is an easy cave to enter and exit. Lots of stairs to climb for one exit (about 160) but you can also exit through the entry. I loved the self guided audio that gave some am...  more »

    We visited the caves in September. Be warned there are a lot of steps down to the cave which take a few minutes to climb down. Back up takes a little longer! There's a little platform half way down wh...  more »

    I recall visiting a cave on a school camp many years ago so a good 25yrs had passed. It was more impressive than I remember. Nature at its finest. Worth a visit if you're in the area. We went late in ...  more »

  • The cave its self is huge and stunning with stalactites and stalagmites a pretty, the audio guide is also informative. The price of $22.50 per adult per cave however is pretty steep and poor value for what essentially takes you 45 mins hence my lower rating. If it was 10 dollars cheaper or it covered multiple caves in the area it could be have potential but at the moment I can't really recommend it as it's poor value.
  • Amazing cave and not too claustrophobic for those with that sort of problem! An audio self guided tour. A lot of steps (170) on the way out unless you go back through the cave which is an option. If you exit up the steps there is a 200+ metre walk back to the starting point which is not covered if it is raining!
  • Very beautiful cave with audio commentary as you go through. It's not a big cave that you can spend two hours in it, but it is worth visiting once
  • A cave with reasonably easy access. Getting out is quite a climb, so elderly and disabled are advised to exit via the entrance. Has been nicely redone in the last 5 years.
  • Great experience. Kids loved it. Friendly helpful staff. Will be back again.

Where to stay in Margaret River

Though many choose to explore the Margaret River wine region from a base at one of the area's campgrounds, you can also set up your home-away-from-home at one of the city's comfortable inns. Look for cozy establishments located near good surfing and swimming beaches. For a more luxurious experience, consider staying at a resort hotel or beach cottage, many of which offer well-equipped cooking areas and wooden decks ideal for holding small parties and family get-togethers.
