Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described as the perfect home for a caveman. Tours are self-guided with an audio headset and begin via an elevated boardwalk through towering Karri forest. As you journey through the spectacular formations lookout for the carefully lit animal bones and fossils and listen to the stories about extinct animals. Wildflowers are abundant around the precinct from September to November. Located 22km south of Margaret River.

Stunning place to visit. Go with shoes (comfy ones), bring a jumper (caves are cold and humid places) and be prepared to walk up the stairs and down the stairs. Safe and beautiful.

We visited this cave as a bunch of friends, we had a 2 cave pass already purchased. Arrived at the check in section to be hardly greeted by the lady behind the counter.

A well known cave for tourists with a variety of features. Easily accessible from Caves Road with parking available on site. Set in bush with walking trails adjacent that introduce a range of local species and provide information about them. Interesting and worth visiting

My mum and uncle are both 83 and they managed it without a problem. My uncle has hip problems and still was fine. If you take it easy and go slow then it shouldn't be a problem. At the end there are quite a few steps and... More

This is the only cave I did, it's very easy to walk into front part of cave, it's a beautiful cave & you don't have to go in very far to see how beautiful it is. It will take as long as you want it to take from 15mins onwards More

No need to pre book. Look in all the booklets and see whether you can get a discount. You can also get a combined ticket with the other caves which works out cheaper if you want to visit more than one site.
