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.

You can make it also as a self guided tour and you see lots of interesting things in it. At the end you have to go back on a short walking track through beautiful landscape and also over a little river. Depends on the season if u can pass it. Read the signs on the track

This cave has a gentle entrance and is a self guided tour you are given a headset and you press the corresponding number. There are times when the audio guide talks about something to come but doesn't tell you to move on. The climb up the end is about 170 steps but not too taxing overall. There is a crossing... More

I was not expecting to see such an amazing cave when I visited Margaret river. In fact I had heard nothing about the caves in the region. What a surprise find, they are a real feature and are very impressive, I visited two, Mammoth and Nigili. Both well worth it. Mammoth had many fossils of Australian megafauna found in it.... More

Very enjoyable self-guided cave tour. Plenty of steps up and down but memorable sights to see. We were almost alone in the cave so the narrow walkways weren't a problem. Also enjoyed the optional bushwalk back - suggest you go right to the end before heading back if not doing the walk. The audio was good- very informative.

Audio guide is good. The Cave is beautiful, but if you can only see one, I'd recommend Lake Cave or Jewel Cave.

Dear Verna P, Thanks for taking the time to post your feedback. One of the most common questions we are asked here in the Margaret River region is "which cave is the best?". It's the only question that we find difficult to answer because all of them are stunning, and people are pretty evenly divided as far as favourites go.... More

This cave was really interesting. It's self guided, and the audio guide made it come alive. A great look into the geological history of our beautiful country.

Firstly, Mammoth Cave is lovely. The surroundings are great and the cave itself is more relaxed and easier to access that the other caves in the Margaret River region (although the other caves are a more exciting experience). The staff however are rude and stroppy. I arrived with my wife and daughter and while I was waiting for my wife... More

An awe inspiring place where the geology and fauna of times past unfolds before your eyes. Bring a jacketas it is very cool inside and be warned that there are many stairs to climb. Well worth a visit
