The Jewel Cave is renowned for its marvellous decorations, hence its name. It's the crown jewel of the Margarent River cave region, Western Australia's (WA's) top location for caves. The Jewel Cave is 37 km (23 miles) south of the town of Margaret River in the karri forest. Amongst other fossils found in the Jewel Cave was a thylacine (Tasmanian... More

I have been to many caves in Australia and the Jewel caves are spectacular. The tour guide was very friendly and knew what she was talking about. Really worth a visit.

Booked Jewel Cave instead of other caves as I read that this was recently renovated and is the biggest cave. We were not disappointed.
