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.

Very impressed with Jackson's friendly service! Jackson is absolutely amazing; phenomenal knowledge and contagious enthusiasm. Amazing young man indeed. Unfortunately we missed the tour by 5 minutes, but we had a wonderful day thanks to advice we received. See you next time!

Absolutely incredible experience! Despite us being late, the male tour guide was completely understanding and caught us up to speed! He was extremely knowledgeable and provided us with an educational yet enjoyable guided tour. The cave was absolutely amazing with many awe-inspiring crystal formation...

A must visit for any first-time visitors to the Margaret River region. Jackson, our cave guide was excellent. Good-humoured and informative tour. Beware of the stairs down and back up the cave... What a work out!

Massive cave with amazing and ancient structures. Informative guides. Make sure you are fit enough to do 500 stairs in am hour though. Going down is gradual, with a number of info stops and photo ops, but going back up at the end seemed to be all at once. Well worth the effort! Huge coffees at Cafe....
