Megafauna Nightstalk now on for April School Holidays
As the sun sets in the karri trees, visit giant replicas of the extinct megafauna species and learn from our guides about the life and death of these supersized animals. Then head into the cave on a private tour to discover how fossils from 38 species were uncovered here in the early 1900's.
Finish with a night walk through the towering trees, lit only by your torch. Who knows what you'll see!
Available for only four days during the April Holidays: 6th, 8th, 13th 15th of April 2021.
About Mammoth Cave
A natural time capsule, and home to ancient fossil remains of long-extinct giant animals.
Mammoth Cave is the most easily accessible of all the show caves in the region, with wheelchair access to the first chamber. Pick up your MP3 self-guided audio tour to get started; available in English, French, German, Malay and Mandarin.
Entering the cave through bushland via a gently sloping boardwalk, you'll realise just how much there is to see here. Over 10,000 fossils had at one time accumulated inside the cave; upon excavating many of these were found to be remains of Australian Megafauna (giant animals) that became extinct around 46,000 years ago. There is even a 50,000 year old 'zygomaturus' jawbone embedded in the cave wall.
Did you know?
If you visit during winter, you'll see a stream flowing through the cave which is stained red from natural tannins.
Complete your tour with a winding walk through the beautiful Marri forest, with whistling birds and stunning flora displays. Mammoth Cave is much more than a cave - it is a complete nature experience.
