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).

"Wheelchair access" is limited to the entrance of the cave. Unfortunately this information wasn't available on the website and so couldn't take our youngest in his buggy. Eldest (3) had a good time though exploring the cave - just had to leave mum and bub outside. Alex Maund

We felt very lucky to be able to visit mammoth Cave today, the exit was almost as spectacular as what was inside. I recommend the 700m walk back instead of going to the car park direct. stephanie vincent
