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.

Absolutely stunning! Fully guided tour with very knowledgeable guide. The formations in the cave are remarkable, as is the story of its discovery. 300 steps down with viewing platforms spread along the way. A must see if you're in the Margaret River area. A little easier to negotiate than the Ngilgi Cave.

Spectacular spot! The cave is 2km long ( tour only access 700m) and 42m deep. $22 per adult for a one hour guided tour. It worth to have a look. In this area there are a few other caves, I don’t know which one is the best.

I visited both the Mammoth Cave and Jewel Caves today. I liked that the Jewel Caves had a guide to take you through this amazing natural beauty. Mammoth is a self guided tour using a headset. A tour guide allows us to ask questions as we go, and l always like to see how engaged they are in what they are teaching us. Tom, our guide, was truly professional and hilarious at the same time. Great tour through the Cave. What a fascinating story on the discovery of the Cave and how the environment (global warming) has affected the Cave in such a short time. We even saw the skeletal remains of a possum (see photo). The walk is via internal stairs and pathways, both up and down over 3 levels. I highly recommend seeing this Cave and any of the others in the Margaret River region.

Wow! Absolutely must do. I've never seen a cave like it, Amazing sights and very informative guided tour. There are about 250 stars down and bk up, took me mum in who's had both knees replaced and recently a few months ago a hip opp and she did struggle a bit about half way bk up, but was well worth it.
