About
Mammoth Cave self-guided tours allow visitors to explore by themselves, while listening to an informative 'audio tour' available in English, French, German, Malay, or Mandarin. This is the easiest of the caves to tour, with the first chamber accessible by wheelchair. Entering the cave through native bushland along a gently sloping boardwalk, visitors can explore the natural time capsule at their own pace. The cave once contained over 10,000 fossils, many of which were the remains of long-extinct giant animals known as Australian Megafauna. Visitors can even view a 50,000-year-old 'zygomaturus' jawbone embedded in the cave wall. After exploring the cave, visitors can take an optional bushwalk back to the guide's station and enjoy the magnificent marri and karri forest surrounding the cave.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was a good self paced tour. I loved how they had the headphones so you can listen to the history at each step. Staff were friendly and the caves took about an hour so quite worth the $25.

A lovely way to cool off on a hot day. The audio was good. The steps out were a challenge but I made it. It wasn't essential and were warned by the staff

This was a totally awesome cave to visit. It was breathtakingly beautiful and so unique. Not hard to walk, although there are stairs to traverse, you can take your time to climb them and hand rails help. I would highly recommend this experience. The audio guide is helpful to your understanding of the cave and its fossils. There is a gentle bush walk at the end.

Mammoth cave was stunning and just amazing. The self guided tour was a great way to see the cave and get lots of information. We were there for about an hour. Parking is easy and the staff were really friendly and helpful

To find the Mammoth Caves in Margaret River was very easy - great signage - and just off the main road. The walk through with the audio tour was very informative but could be challenging to those with any mobility issues.

This was quite an easy cave to examine and one we hadn't seen before. The fossils were stunning and the formations are simply beautiful. The staff were very helpful and engaged in a but of humour with us as well. We took the long walk back as recommended and it was delightful being among such tall timbers

Beautiful cave! The self guided tour was a great feature. The information was presented really well and the above ground walk was also great. Would definitely recommend!

This is a great self guided tour of the cave. With your MP 3 player providing the commentary along the way, you can go at your own pace. This is quite an accessible cave.. The cave itself is quite spectacular and I wound recommend a visit.
