About Mammoth Cave, Margaret River
Of all the famous caves in this region, this is the most accessible, and the first chamber here is known for being accessible by wheelchair. Upon arrival, you'll be provided with an audio-guide, which will guide you through your tour of the cave. Why is it famous? Fossils. Like the name suggest, the cave has preserved the remains of various Australian Megafauna. First discovered in the early 1900s embedded in the limestone rock, about 10000 fossils were found; some of these are at least 50,000 years old. Your tour will end in a pretty natural trail through what’s known as a 'Marri' forest.
If you visit the cave during winter, you'll find a red-colored stream flowing through it.

Mammoth Cave, Margaret River Reviews
I rated this as a “3 Star” because, as a wheelchair user, I could only access the boardwalk to the cave and the 1st chamber. I believe that the cave is fairly extensive but it has to be accessed by stairs and further boardwalks, which rules out most people with accessibility issues. Accessible parking is easy and is immediately adjacent to wheelchair accessible toilets. A boardwalk takes you down a gentle slope to the ticket office/gift shop and on to the cave entrance, about 60m away. The native flora by the boardwalk is abundant and typical of these southwestern forests. The entry chamber to the cave is impressive but my photos should display this. Hidden among the trees are recreations of some long-extinct mega-fauna, which is a nice touch.
Absolutely fantastic cave. This place has audio guides all in on the price, you can spend a couple of hours here. There are also forests to look around. Well worth a visit
A very relaxed cave tour but still amazing to experience. Lots of steps but very easy to navigate and take your time as the tour is by mp3 player so you can stop at certain points as long as you like. Great for children as you are not required to stay with a group as such, and pricing is reasonable.
Great cave , nice staff, self guided tour so you can stop and start at your own pace, so much to take in, then at the end you climb up 160 steps onto caves road , does have a gate so kids can't run off, if you do not like the sound of so many steps in one go then when you get to the end just turn around and go back the way you entered, once you cross caves road you have the choice to walk 200 m back to the main reception area or do the 700 m bush walk, we did the 700 and loved it, it is not too long, no steep hills, worth it, all in all a good experience.
Awesome cave self guided tour so go at your own pace, if caves are your thing check this one out
