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.

Had a wonderful visit. Lots of parking. Beautifully presented entry/gift shop/cafe. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Such a privilege to see such an amazing sight and learn so much about its history. Food from the cafe was delicious. We booked online but still had to go to the desk to check in.

Visiting Jewel Cave is an incredible experience. Unlike the other nearby caves, the entrance/exit is man-made, to help protect the cave. The fully guided tour helps visitors move slowly through the cave, able to take in all the sights and insights on how it was formed, and what’s happened there too. Thank you to the staff there. We had an amazing experience. ☺️🥰

Great place to for a visit and adventure. Well looked after and maintained walkways. Friendly staff and tour guides. Has a souvenirs shop and cafe. Very informative. Tickets can be purchased over counter, check with tour times into cave. 5* would recommend to others

Beautiful sights and makes sensational photos. I would certainly recommend this to anyone in the area. Just note that there are quite a few stairs, but if you don't mind the stairs you should definitely check it out
