Very good might be a little strong, but definitely worth a visit if you're in the Margaret River region. We stopped in on our way to Ausgusta. The tour took about an hour (or so). It was educational, and the cave walls were pretty amazing to look at. Lots of stairs to climb.

We drove from Perth and visited the cave. It was amazing and well worth the drive. Our guide was Crusty who was very knowledgeable and friendly. Caves Road where the caves is situated is a gorgeous drive as well! Highly recommend it.

Great Caves, visited all 3, Mammoth, Lake and Jewel. Well worth the visit. Mammoth Cave is a self guided tour, whilst Jewel and Lake Caves are guided. The tour guides were all extremely knowlegaeable and helpful. We went as adults and 1 pensioner, but we did see children on the tours. Probably not good for very small children due to... More

Worth the trip! A huge cave with lots of straws and interesting lighting. Guide was fun and knowledgable. Lots of stairs but at a slow pace so quite easy.

We visited here whilst staying at Margaret River, Acacia Chalets. Diane was our guide and was very knowledgable and interesting. The tour was very good but quite strenuous with a lot of stairs to climb up and down. If you enjoy visiting caves, don't miss this one.

These caves are some of the most impressive I have ever seen. The Tour guide was excellent. However if you have any heart or respiratory issues you may find the stairs a serious challenge. The do have a defribullator on hand and I can understand why.

Only cave we visited in the area and glad we chose one that was spot on. An hour tour with an informative guide, many types of formation. Tied in with a look at the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse and you've filled an afternoon well - and a nice drive down from Margaret River to boot.

This was a wonderful experience! The Cave itself is so amazing and just shows how awesome nature can be! The guide was very informative and the tour was a good length. The cave is just beautiful and definitely worth the entry fee. Quite a few steps back up (as the way down is broken down in various stages) but its... More

Yesterday I took my parents for a trip down Jewel Cave. They had seen Lake Cave on their last visit and so we wanted to see a different one. Our guide was Dianne and what a passionate commentary she gave during the entire visit. Her presentation of information made this experience all the more enjoyable. The cave itself is really... More
