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).

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.

Bring a jumper it gets cold inside the cave. We all enjoyed the self guided tour wearing head phones and a little torch comes with it. It's beautiful inside with some fossils on the side of the rock. My 4 year old climbed all the steps and my 6 year old enjoyed it too.

Wow, this was incredible! The first thing my partner and I noticed upon walking in was just how quiet and peaceful it was in the cave. We were blessed to be the only ones in there and that felt very special. Thanks everyone!

You know when it's in your backyard so you never visit? But when you do it's such an experience? Mammoth cave was that for me. Magical sights and science. Would recommend.
