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.

Our guide was brilliant, I can't remember her name but I know she is about to finish University! Very knowledgeable and friendly and gave the right amount of information. The caves themselves great, lots of beautiful formations. Highly recommend this experience.

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

AMAZING way to end my day. The tour guide explains everything in an interesting and interactive way. The cave very large and equally stunning. If u go to Augusta this is definitely the one thing u have to try.

Deb was a great guide. Tara at front desk was so helpful when we arrived early and requested an earlier tour. Chantal In the cafe is so sweet. Good shakes.
