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.

I'm not into caving but these caves just blew us away. The lighting effects really showcase the features. They open up into a huge cavern so no worries about claustrophobia. Highly recommended from us.

My aunt wanted to visit the caves and the boardwalk access made this possible, at least as far as the first cavern. It gave a feel of the space and a glimpse of the stalactite and stalagmite formations and was not too difficult a push.

Group also went through Lake and Jewel Caves so is difficult to rate because they are all so different. The audio tour of this one created quite a unique and informative experience. Listening to experts in their fields provided extra information. A unique red scarf in this cave is huge and the walk, being self-paced made it more accessible. There... More

The tour guide was enthusiastic. We were warned about the stairs. They were fairly steep but easily managed

Great walk through the cave. Many steps and stairs but even with arthritis and fibro I managed to negotiate. Highly recommend this beautiful natural wonder as a must see while travelling in WA.

Definitely worth it - beautiful wonder of nature. This is a well narrated self guided tour, very interesting piece of local history. If you are interested in visiting more then one cave - I'd suggest purchasing the multi cave pass. being self guided you can linger and enjoy the cool and profound quiet. Again, plenty of narrow stairs to navigate... More

My wife and I visited Mammoth Cave with our kids (age 5 and 3) and we were a little worried about the amount of steps etc for the kids, however this proved not to be an issue and I think they were so amazed by what they were seeing there was not one complaint... although its fair to say they...

If we had the time we would have visited more caves. The kids liked listening but I might have liked to join a guided tour instead. We also liked the trail back.

Dear ze_succubus, 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. Mammoth... More
