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.

Highly recommend. Have done all the other caves in the area, some of which are very commercial/privately owned, and this was very different from the rest. Much more physical and adventurous. Helmet with torch needed and instructions before we descended which were very helpful. Took us an hour and was fabulous although challenging in parts. Lots of ladder climbing and a bit of chain/rope assistance plus a couple of tight squeeze spots. Stunning formations to look at. Recommend wearing old clothes as you will get dirty, and take wet wipes or tissues if you want to take photos as your hands will get super filthy. Do not recommend if you struggle with climbing ladders, and I did get weak legs when I looked down at one point. Next day we had very sore calves and thighs from the climbing, but well worth it and would totally do again. Not suitable for children or persons of large build. Staff at entrance were very helpful and informative.

Decided to travel south to escape the summer heat in January. Reached the place around 12:00 PM. At short distance (<2 km) from Lake caves, the place is for little adventurers. Self-guided trail is available between 9:30 AM till 3:00 PM (Last entry time) and it takes average 1 hour to 1.5 hours depending on your pace.
I went to lake caves first while traveling directly from Perth and we just managed to reach in time as we visited Lake Caves first.
Caves are well managed with nominal fees for head gear and torches. The ladders and track marks are places at right locations for guiding. Though wandering in the caves does not require special skills, at few places, the climbing through narrow openings is tricky. It required climbing down +100 step and at multiple locations, climbing up on small ladders. We also enjoyed complete darkness by switching off all the lights!
Restaurants are not in the vicinity, and it is recommended to carry food and water.
Overall great experience!

Throughly enjoyable experience. We had the cave to ourselves.
Some tight spots in places. Not good for large people or claustrophobic either. You need to be able to scramble over rocks and pull yourself up a chain. Teenagers would love it.

This is the cave we come back to when we’re in the Margaret River area. It’s not lit and it’s self guided with helmets and head lamps, and some of the cave system is a little rough to navigate (a bit of rock scrambling, narrow shafts with ladders etc) but it is perfectly safe. The rawness of the experience lets you feel the true beauty and brutality of this monolithic cave. It’s spooky and humbling, and my legs went to jelly a few times, but it’s also very profound. Once we were up on the ground again everything seemed new and bright.
Not recommended for those with claustrophobia, fear of the dark, severe nervous disorders or heart illnesses. It’s the haunted house theme park attraction of the caves.
Having said that, if you trust your friends or travelling companions and hold onto the rails, all will be fine!

This is a true adventurer's experience as it involves climbing, crawling & manoeuvering through tight cavities. You will be physically challenged. This cave IS NOT for you if you are claustrophobic, suffer mobility issues, are much older or of a larger body shape.

As previously mentioned, this is not a pristine cave with tasteful lighting, wide boardwalks and an "easy" experience but somehow it feels more authentic and certainly more demanding than the guided tours of Lake & Jewel Caves.

We took 2 teens ( 16 & 14) and they absolutely loved it.

Highly recommended if you're after a physically demanding but ultimately rewarding experience.

What an experience! I just can't put in to words how wonderful (and physical) this cave was. Been through them all, but this was on another level. Highly recommend going to see for yourself A++

6 Nurses vs Giant cave:
CN refused to participate as she
encountered the mammoth cave and was recovering from hypovolemic shock. anticipated the dangers ahead, do not recommend if hungover, physically unfit and are in need of tetanus boost. Giant cave is a test of mental endurance, if you suffer PTSD this is not for you. This cave is highly dangerous, mentally challenging (post cave: you will need admitting to a psychiatric facility for PTSD. This experience will turn you from a happy fun loving excitable woman to a broken shadow of a person that will need therapy and daily valium to overcome the flashbacks of absailing up a rope to find daylight and escape the hell of the cave. A waver should be signed prior to admission for no liabilities if injuries, death or mental breakdown should occur.

We visited this cave with two teenagers it was a great experience. although the cave might not be as pretty as Lake cave. We loved the adventure side of it, the fact that it was self guided and that we didn’t come across anyone else in the cave. There are a few ladders to climb and one tight space which added to the adventure. Well worth it!

The Giants Cave is the best cave experience on the SW Capes - it has a bit of everything for the person who likes to take themselves on a self-guided tour, explore a deep, long, dark cave, scramble a bit, climb some ladders and see a variety of formations.
Whilst it doesn't have a huge array of brightly lit shawls, and massive columns like other nearby caves, it does have a much more 'authentic' caving experience for the more self-aware, observant, physically fit person.
Some highlights are: walking along the bed of a stream at the bottom of the cave, the magnificent Ballroom, the tight squeezes, the complete darkness and silence.
