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.
