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).

We went to Mammoth Cave, Lake Cave and Jewel Cave. Jewel Cave was easily the best out of the three. It was the largest, more intricate and delicate looking and just spectacular. I would rate Mammoth the second best. The cave was large, had various formations and a short bush walk at the end. I enjoyed that I could go at my own pace and not as part of a group. If you do not enjoy group excursions, this is the cave for you. Lake cave wasn't bad but you should know that you don't get to go very deep in the cave. Sarukaroo

Oh wow! This place lives up to its name. We had visited quite a few caves on our trip, however this was the most spectacular both in size and formations. Incredible! Sam Wiebenga

One of semi guided cave tour. It’s one of the largest cave. All the tour inside the cave are prerecorded and numbered, you will be provided with headset and tape with buttons to press as you go inside. If you are visiting other caves too, buying tickets from counter together offers some discounts. This cave is definitely worth visiting, it is safe but much walk and steps. Nice bush walk on return back to counter. All fees and donations is going to support community and cave management. jigme yonten chhogyal

We came here after visiting Jewel Cave and buying discounted tickets. We were blown away by Jewel Cave and it was suggested that we try this one next. Sadly, this cave does not have the same impact and I don’t believe it should have an equal admission fee, especially given it is self-guided. The upside to this cave is the ability to see the natural entrances and how the flora has co-existed along these rocky formations. The audio narration worked well, but it meant you had to come to a stop and wait for the information to finish before moving onto the next track. Life's Abroad

Well worth the visit. Nature, you just can't beat it. Lots of stairs so if you're got bad knees probably would be an issue. Self guided tour with headsets. Make sure you stay at each station before the narration has finished as it points out rock formations at the end! Geoff Sutherland
