Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Amazing natural wonder”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I was skeptical but this is well worth the entry fee. Enjoyed this most out of the 3 caves - it's as mammoth as the name suggests and took a while to walk through but was very beautiful and interesting. Look out for the fossil!

“Excellent - not to be missed”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We stopped here on our second day, and makes a difference from wine tasting all day. There is a cost to the self guided tour, but this is well worth the time out from tasting. Recommend to get there early to miss the crowds.

“Interesting site”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The guided MP3 tour helps in understanding what is in the cave, rather than just walking in it blindly

“Easy cave to visit”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We liked this cave as you can walk around it at your own pace with the provided audio system and you don't have to wait for a guided tour at set times like the other caves in the region. It's not as pretty though as the others as it is much larger and more exposed to the elements.

Dear Bel01,

Thanks for taking the time to post your feedback and we are glad that you liked the cave. 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 Cave is our most popular cave, mainly because of the size, the megafauna bones, and the fact that it is self-guided. But then the others have their own unique aspects too - Lake Cave with its stunning reflections, Ngilgi Cave with its incredible shawls, and Jewel Cave with its mind-bending crystal helictites.

It's a tough choice!

Thanks again, and safe travels.

“Must check it out..”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I liked this cave the best as you could go at your own pace and it was fairly open and not suffocating like some of the others. Little information tid bits around the cave were enjoyable.
