Jewel Cave is the biggest show cave in Western Australia, with three massive chambers of incredible beauty. This crystal-encrusted cave is the most recently opened of all the show caves in the Margaret River region.

Jewel Cave is an extremely well decorated cave, containing many beautiful examples of delicate helectites, cave coral, pendulites, a very large stalagmite called ‘The Karri Forest’, and beautiful examples of flowstone such as ‘The Frozen Waterfall’ and ‘the Organ-pipes’.

Fossilised remains of several Tasmanian Tigers or 'Thylacines' have been discovered within Jewel Cave's chambers, safely preserved more than 3000 years after the unusual marsupial became extinct on mainland Australia. There is a skeleton of a thylacine on display in the Jewel Cave centre.

A short walk trail meanders through the forest above the cave, passing the interesting 'original entrance' to the cave. Lunch or light refreshments are available at the Jewel Cave Cafe, complimented by views of the surrounding karri forest.

What an awesome tour and cave. We have visited many caves across the world but this for us was hands down the best. The cave is massive and so unique. The guided tour informative and engaging. We had friends say it was the best one to visit and they definitely were not wrong. Morv Jones

Absolutely fabulous! This was a 1 hour tour with some steps, all on boardwalks so pretty manageable for most people. Our tour guide, David was entertaining and extremely knowledgeable. It was great to have a "live guide" who conveyed his passion so well to visitors. An extra tour was put on to accommodate the overflow from the 4pm tour. Everything about this was perfect and I highly recommend discovering Jewel Cave. Keryn Zeeb

Wow! wow! wow! Just spectacular... and a big shout out to our guide, Luke... a big thank you & well done! Totally enjoyed our tour. Just about the only thing guests need to be aware of is - there are a lot of steps, especially coming back up! Elizabeth “Nanny E” Van Der Syde

It was a great experience and a beautiful part of Western Australia to see. The guide Richard made the tour really enjoyable and made the information about the caves and formations in there clear and easy to understand. Definitely worth the stairs 😃👍👍 Lisa Piscioneri
