This magical cave is a natural time capsule; home to ancient fossil remains of long-extinct giant animals. A fascinating audio tour is available in several languages. Mammoth Cave is the most easily accessed of all the show caves in the region, with wheelchair access into the first chamber.

Mammoth Cave is a self-guided cave, where visitors explore along the boardwalks and platforms, through the majestic chambers of the cave. This is much more than a cave - it is a complete nature experience.

The entrance boardwalk follows the path of a winter-stream, winding through the forest outside and into the massive first chamber of the cave. This is the site of one of Australia's most important palaeontological digs in the early 1900's. The cave still contains the fossil jawbone of a long-extinct giant marsupial species, embedded within the limestone wall - 50,000 years after the animal roamed the forests above.

A visit to Mammoth Cave finishes with a winding walk through the beautiful marri forest, with whistling birds and stunning flora displays.

Excellent . Its big! We only had a quick visit due to time constraints, so set yourself a few hours to take it all in. Self guided tour is good with the radio commentary. Again not well advertised, as all the yuppies and latte sippers just go to Margaret river to eat and drink. Rod Tyson

Impressive cave in the South West. Self guided tours with headsets. Wasn't a huge cave however it is worth checking out, there are mega fauna fossils in the cave, and also other fossils. There is a bit of a walk out however it's not extreme. There is also two routes back to the entrance above ground after you've walked up the stairs. The walk back is nice through the marri forest and there are some great scenery. There is also a shorter walk back for people who just want to see the cave. Will Fogarty

Went there as Lake Cave was fully booked and we do not regret it, this cave was great, only one other family was wandering around the cave at the time of our visit, so we could enjoy it and take our time to listen to history through the earphones. Quite chilly, 12 degrees, so take a jumper. The staff at the entrance kind and friendly and nice little gift shop with nice quality souvenirs. :) Bożena Piska
