Mammoth Cave, Margaret River

4.4
#2 of 16 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.

  • This was a great cage to explore. It was a semi guided audio tour really easy to use gear. A few steps be easy going with options for higher fitness levels  more »
  • Awesome cave. Take a jacket in October - cooler. Interesting, informative and take the long way back if you can make the many stairs out. Loved it.  more »

  • I recommend visiting this place if you like adventure! The self guided tour was very easy to do and came with a lot of interesting facts. The walkways are well lit and organized. It's a bit out of town but because of the friendly and welcoming service at the front I would be willing to come back!
  • Out of this world. Loved all the caves and i was so happy to adventure through such a huge one like mammoth. Staff was lovely! A must do.
  • Incredible experience there. And great audio tours! Good for kids to because it's pretty easy, maybe not for 3 year olds and under.
  • Good experience. The formations were unique. Very cold inside so bring jacket. There were steps up and down inside the cave.
  • 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.

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.
