“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Has a very good visitor centre and there are a couple of different tours one can do. We chose the one hour guided tour. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and the cave was pretty amazing and well designed in terms of walkways. Well worth a visit.

“lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

decided to go here out of all the caves in the area, it turned out to be a lovely experience, walking down and around in the cave you were just struck by one amazing sight after another, you really can't realise how all the staligmites and staligtites were formed, be prepared for when they turn the lights off and you can't see anything at all no matter how hard you think your eyes will refocus, well worth the entrance fee, small cafe on site as well

“Fabulous Cave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We went to the Caves outside of Margaret River and our fav was the Jewel Cave, what a spectacular display of mother natures work. Our guide, Simon was so friendly and informative and because there were on two of us on the tour we have lots of opportunities to ask lots of questions and Simon was more than happy to share his wealth of knowledge. If you are going to the south west of Australia, the caves are a must see.

“A real 'Jewel' amongst the caves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

There are a number of very high quality caves in the South West of WA, but Jewel Cave is possibly the best of them all. It is appropriately named. Be prepared to be dazzled by the four enormous chambers, one of which is home to the longest straw stalactities in the world. The beautiful little town of Augusta is nearby, and is well worth a visit, Any trip to Margaret River should include a visit here.

“Well worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The cave itself is just breathtaking and the tour was very enjoyable and informative. The prices are a little steep but worth it in the end.
We had lunch at the cafe and LOVED the experience! Staff are super friendly and the food was home-made and delicious!
