What to Expect

Jewel Cave is the biggest show cave in Western Australia, with three massive chambers of incredible beauty. This crystal-encrusted cave is the most recently opened of all the show caves in the Margaret River region.

 

This fully guided 1 hr tour showcases the breathtaking magnitude of this cave. You will see towering crystal creations that have taken thousands of years to form, and intricate decorations stretching and suspended across the ceiling, like vines and dancing cobwebs. It also contains many beautiful examples of delicate helictites, cave coral, pendulites, a very large stalagmite called ‘The Karri Forest’, and amazing examples of flowstone such as ‘The Frozen Waterfall’ and ‘the Organ-pipes’.

 

You'll hear stories of the now-extinct Tasmanian Tigers that fell into the cave and perished. Fossilised remains of several Tasmanian Tigers or 'Thylacines' have been discovered within Jewel Cave's chambers, safely preserved more than 3000 years after the unusual marsupial became extinct on mainland Australia. There is a skeleton of a thylacine on display in the Jewel Cave centre.

 

Your awe-inspiring crystal journey is perfectly complemented with the option of a self-guided Karri Walk through the towering forest giants. Jewel Cave Cafe also offers delicious coffee, light lunches and refreshments complete with karri forest views.

Yes, photography is encouraged from the viewing platforms, but for safety reasons is not recommended when walking on the stairs. You can use a flash, but most people find that they get better photos without it.

Tripods and selfie sticks are not allowed in the cave to ensure the safety of all visitors and the preservation of the delicate cave decorations and adhere to timing constraints.

Since there are quite a few steps involved in most of the tours, comfortable enclosed shoes are recommended, however, you can still do the tours in thongs/flip flops/jandals if you feel you can.

The caves are fragile environments, and we try to minimise our impact on these irreplaceable natural attractions as much as possible; for this reason, we ask visitors not to bring too much into the cave with them (remember also you will have to carry it while climbing!)

Bring a camera and water if you need it; but no other drinks, and no food. Depending on the weather; sunscreen, a hat and/or wet weather gear may be required.

As you walk through the caves, there will be places where you are required to bend down a little or turn to the side slightly to avoid bumping your head or shoulder, but most of the caverns are quite open. If in doubt, the best cave to visit is Mammoth Cave, with its huge open caverns and easy entrance, it tends to allay most people’s phobias.

There is excellent lighting throughout the caves, and on guided tours, the guide will operate these as you move through the cave and use a torch to highlight points of interest.
