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.

Fascinating

Simplest of the 4 caves (Ngilgi, Lake and Jewel being the others), perfect for beginner cavers. Love the little stream as the minerals in the water make it turn blood red!

We loved the Mammoth Cave and thought it was the best, it takes your breath away at first glance. It has stunning examples of stalagmites, stalactites, shawls and a lovely flowing little river through the middle. We had never seen anything like it and highly recommend it. It would be great for families of all ages and has wheelchair access... More

This is a review of the hardest tour of many that are offered, the Wild Cave Tour. My God, this is pretty hardcore. One of our group of 14 was happy not to even set off, having been briefed on what to expect. This is about immersing yourselves in caving, far less about looking at the views, history, environment etc.... More

Dear Mark T, Thanks for taking the time to post your review, however, it sounds like you visited another cave that holds the same name as ours - Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. It sounds like you had an incredible experience! Mammoth Cave in Margaret River is also amazing, it takes approximately 1 hour to view the cave and is self... More

After having just completed the Tour of the Lake Cave, this was our next natural progression. you are given an audio device with headphones and can listen along with your walk. The only trouble with this I found was that you generally walk a lot faster than the audio assumes, and for the most part I was long past something... More

We only had time to visit one cave during our stay in Margaret River and we chose this one. We arrived quite close to closing time but fortunately we were allowed to go in by the staff. The caves are self-guided and you are given an audio guide to listen to. The caves are all on well lit boardwalks and... More

I was quite surprised how beautiful these caves were. Only a 15-20 min drive from Maragret River so it's worth doing if you have a spare hour in the day. It is also a self guided tour with head sets which was nice as we could go at our own pace. I recommend going in the morning - we went... More

A great visit to the amazing Mammoth Cave. A must do if you are in the area. Easy to find and plenty of parking when we were there and worth the cost of entry. Just amazing.
