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.

This is an experience not to be missed. First time in a cave and I would highly recommend a guided tour (such as this) for the first time. Teaching all about stalactites, stalagmites and all the other incredible formations. Showing us the different sections of the cave and how many thousands of years it took. Incredible.

Josh, our tour guide, was awesome!!! Super informative but funny and witty too. The caves are amazing. So glad we did a guided tour instead of going solo. Jewel caves are a must see if you’re in the area. Highly recommend 👍🏼

The cave is an astounding sight to see, really makes you wonder how lucky we are to be a part of this planet. Make sure to book beforehand as slots can be filled up really fast. Parking is abundant, but if you’re coming on a public holiday, it might get tricky.

Beautiful cave. The tour guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable and abit too overwhelmed for my mind. Which is actually good, not negative at all. It makes me read more about the cave information and history.
