COVID-19 Update for Mammoth Cave
On the 20th March 2020, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced new social distancing measures to slow the spread of Coronavirus. For gatherings of fewer than 100 people in an enclosed space, the Government is now recommending four square metres per person. We have assessed the implications of this advice and unfortunately we will need to close Mammoth Cave as of 23rd March 2020.

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.
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.
