About
Jewel Cave is the largest show cave in Western Australia, with three immense chambers. Visitors are immediately awed by the breathtaking magnitude of the first chamber, also home to one of the longest straw stalactites found in any tourist cave in Australia. Towering crystal formations, growing for thousands of years, delicate, intricate decorations suspended like vines across the ceiling. Visitors will hear stories of the 'Tasmanian Tiger' fossils found here and remnants of animals that perished in the darkness after falling into the cave thousands of years ago. After exiting the cave, visitors can take a self-guided walk through the towering karri forest above, passing by the natural entrance to the cave, a small vertical shaft in the forest floor through which the cave was first entered.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

Guide was personable, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. The tour was well-paced and well-thought out.
Cave is in pristine condition and so much more extensive than others we have toured.

Jewel Cave is the largest cave system in South West Australia. It is managed by the Capes Foundation, a not for profit organisation that manages several other attractions and caves in the area, superbly. The tour runs on the hour, and takes an hour. While much of the cave system is immense, there are a lot of steps up and down, and some places might be a little claustrophobic. Personally, I was blown away by it. Stalagmites and tites, straws, calcite waterfalls, roots from the ceiling and a custom light show all add to the wonder, we had Gary as our guide and he did a fantastic job of telling the stories (amongst other things they found the remains and paw prints of a Thylacine (Tasy Tiger) that fell into the cave and wandered the darkness trying to get out) and setting the scenes for the wonders of the 3 cave system.

Another hot day in WA so exploring a cave was a great idea. This cave is massive and has lots to see. Also, lots of stairs so be prepared for a bit of huffing and puffing. The tour guide was great - takes about an hour in the cave. I would recommend booking in advance.

Make sure you book a head. We missed out seeing this cave. Look under Margaret River Caves. They only do aloted times during the day and can only fit so many people in their per time allowment.

What a fabulous tour this was. Our guide was so good with so much information about the caves and great stories too.
The caves are incredible, they're huge with so many different types of Stalactites and stalagmites. Definitely worth a visit.
The Cafe and gift shop are worth going to ascertain well.
