Overview
More
Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described as the perfect home for a caveman. Tours are self-guided with an audio headset and begin via an elevated boardwalk through towering Karri forest. As you journey through the spectacular formations lookout for the carefully lit animal bones and fossils and listen to the stories about extinct animals. Wildflowers are abundant around the precinct from September to November. Located 22km south of Margaret River.

A very informative tour with audio headsets, the cave is really well designed so you can see all of it. I have visited a number of the caves in South WA and this is well worth a look.

I have been to a few caves but this one is different. Its self guided so it is done at your own pace. The cave system is mammoth, not as colorful as some but interesting by its size. Well worth a visit.

We arrived right at 4pm just in time to get tickets for our self-guided tour before closing. The view inside the cave was very cool. The stalactites and stalagmites were very interesting to see. We got some good photos and had a good time.
