Jewel Cave is the biggest show cave in Western Australia, with three massive chambers of incredible beauty. This crystal-encrusted cave is the most recently opened of all the show caves in the Margaret River region.
Jewel Cave is an extremely well decorated cave, containing many beautiful examples of delicate helectites, cave coral, pendulites, a very large stalagmite called ‘The Karri Forest’, and beautiful examples of flowstone such as ‘The Frozen Waterfall’ and ‘the Organ-pipes’.

Fossilised remains of several Tasmanian Tigers or 'Thylacines' have been discovered within Jewel Cave's chambers, safely preserved more than 3000 years after the unusual marsupial became extinct on mainland Australia. There is a skeleton of a thylacine on display in the Jewel Cave centre.

A short walk trail meanders through the forest above the cave, passing the interesting 'original entrance' to the cave. Lunch or light refreshments are available at the Jewel Cave Cafe, complimented by views of the surrounding karri forest.

It is one of the must-visit places if you happen to stay around Margaret River for a few days 😜 Although it is considered as a "young cave" it has many elements and history to learn from. The guide was patient in explaining the details and history of the cave and kept the visuals engaging. Overall it's an awesome experience and not to be miss!

Visited this cave many many years ago. The cave is well maintained and the guides are humorous. A lot of geography to digest so will be great for people who are interested in this area. Guide did mention that the carbon dioxide level in the cave that day was a bit high and I did feel breathless especially when ascending from the cave (I do have asthma).

We recently visited Jewel Cave and was absolutely blown away by its natural beauty. The cave formations are simply breathtaking, with stunning stalactites and stalagmites around every corner. The guided tour was informative and engaging, offering fascinating insights into the cave's history and geology. The lighting inside the cave was perfectly done, highlighting the intricate details of the formations. The temperature is around 16 degrees C, but you don't need a jacket. It's quite pleasant. Overall, Jewel Cave is a must-visit for nature lovers and those interested in geology. An unforgettable experience!

The cave was big and wonderful. The tour itself was fun, a bit of a journey, but overall a great experience. The rest of the facility with a small cafe is very pretty and homely.
