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 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. 

Mammoth Cave is the most easily accessed of all the show caves in the region, with wheelchair access into the first, most magnificent chamber of the cave.

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. 

(Wheelchair access to the first chamber - sorry no prams or strollers).

Mammoth Cave was a great experience. The cave itself is quite stunning, and the self-guided audio tour was informative. There are walkways to guide you through, so there's no wandering off the trail. We had a group with children ranging from 4-14 yrs and they all handled it well. There are a few areas with steps inside the cave, and a climb of 160-odd steps to exit the cave. Seth Merlo

Friendly and helpful staff. Informative and fun for the entire family. Absolutely beautiful scenery and amazing natural structures. Must see an must do at least once in your life time. Our kids loved it that much there looking on the map they got from the counter for other caves they want to go and see. They can't wait to go through a cave again. Wayne Shepherdson

Amazing open cave with self guided audio tour. Stunning formations. 170 stair climb at the end, many stairs within. 700m optical Bush walk at the end with many native wildflowers in October. Certainly recommend! Shannon McCallum

Impressive cave to visit, easy to go at your own pace with self guided audio. Fair few stairs to climb to get out but not too bad. Nice walk in the bush at the end too so all good overall. Anthony Smith

Enjoyed cooling off wondering around one of the caves near Margaret River. Self guided with audio sets which is nice and easy. Didn't find the lady too friendly at the front desk. For tourism need to feel welcomed. Fiona Aoun
