A really interesting cave, with good boardwalk and stair access, and history. Dry cave, lighting highlights unique features. Similar to most limestone caves in Australia.

Great service buying tickets. Alan was more than helpful, in relation to viewing more than one cave, lighthouse. Once on the cave tour, Alan was exceptional, very knowledgeable, answered all questions. Cave was amazing. A must see, not something you can experience from photos, or someone else's experience.

We recently visited the cave. It was breathtaking experience. Our tour guide Alan was extremely knowledgable, professional and friendly man. We loved every second of our tour. If you are planing to visit Margaret river or Augusta, This place is must see. Make sure you go before 3.30pm that's the last tour for day.

Took my cave phobic niece for a visit as it really is unmissable as a tourist attraction in the south. This was my 3rd or 4th visit. Huge cavern and rooms joined with narrow passage ways and steep steps. The formations throughout are well worth it as they are pretty much intact.

This cave did not disappoint. It is everything and more that is described in the brochure. Will definitely be going back.

Having previously visited the Ngigli Caves on our last trip down under, this time we opted for the Jewel Caves. Oscar our young guide was extremely knowledgable, professional, friendly & patient - a real credit to the Jewel team! I won't say too much about the tour, except it is well worth the admission fee! Highly enjoyable.

We decided at the last minute to make the short drive from Margaret River townsite to Jewel Cave on a sunny Sunday. We arrived just in time for a tour with the lovely Rusty, one of the friendliest and most knowledgeable guides we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. The cave is beautiful and even for the very unfit (me!)... More
