This magical cave is a natural time capsule; home to ancient fossil remains of long-extinct giant animals. A fascinating audio tour is available in several languages. Mammoth Cave is a self-guided cave, where visitors explore along the boardwalks and platforms, through the majestic chambers of the cave. This is much more than a cave - it is a complete nature experience.
Mammoth Cave is a natural time capsule, home to the ancient fossil remains of long-extinct Australian Megafauna. As the most easily accessible of all the show caves in the region, Mammoth Cave offers wheelchair access to the first chamber and MP3 audio tours available in English, French, German, Malay, and Mandarin. 

Visitors can explore this outstanding cave system at their own pace and come face-to-face with a 50,000 year old ‘'zygomaturus' jawbone that is embedded in the cave wall! Mammoth Cave is a unique window into the past, with over 10,000 fossils having once accumulated inside the cave. Upon excavating, many of these fossils were found to be remains of Australian Megafauna (giant animals) that became extinct around 46,000 years ago.
 
A visit to Mammoth Cave finishes with a winding walk through a beautiful marri forest. The marri forest is currently regenerating and reinventing itself following recent fires. The trail is lined with new growth and flourishing green foliage climbs the trunks of the towering trees. Mammoth Cave is much more than a cave - it is a complete nature experience.

For your safety and the protection of the recovering forest, please keep to the designated walking trail at all times.

(Wheelchair access to the first chamber - sorry no prams or strollers).

Definitely worth a visit and glad My wife and I went. Like how they give you a little audio unit and headphones to tell you some information about the cave. Also if you can do the 160 step climb to get out puts things in perspective. Low light photos came out great.

This cave is a great place to visit. There are quite a few stairs so you need to have a bit of fitness to go through the cave as you move up and down to see the features. There is a self guided tour with headphones which explains everything in the cave. There are low points and it is damp so a bit of caution is advised. Still a great place to visit, with public toilets and a visitor center.

Lovely experience. The self guided tour was informative. Note there are quite a few stairs to do. I recommend taking your time if you have knee issues. Definitely do the 700m walk through bush at the end.

Stunning cave!!! Definitely wear enclosed shoes, pants/shorts & take a jumper! Need a good camera with a flash option. 160 steps to get up/out - so be prepared for kids to get out of breathe lol. I highly recommend the long bush walk back to enjoy the stream crossing. Keep an eye out for the tiny orchids.
