Just eight kilometres from Augusta is Jewel Cave, only discovered in 1958. I nearly drove past but luckily I turned off just as it opened. The caves are spectacular and our guide Crusty was very knowledgeable. Take the time to see this amazing natural phenomenon.

Absolutely amazing! Huge, huge cave with brilliant tour guide. Various rooms and stairways within the cave which give you a brilliant all round picture of the entire cave. Definitely worth seeing!!

We had a thoroughly enjoyable tour through Jewel Cave with Ricki. Tour duration about 45 mins. Constant walking with a few rest stops for viewing. An easy pace, nothing too strenuous. Very impressive cave with great formations and good lighting.

This is one of many caves in the area. It has guided tours at set times. The guide was a fount of information about the caves. There are lots of steps down and back, and some overhanging rocks to be careful of. The formations are great. Well worth a visit.

On our world wind trip to Margaret River a friend told us to check out the caves. We had little time but a quick review on Trip Advisor pointed us to Jewel Cave one of plenty of cave options in the area. We weren't disappointed it was as Spectacular as it was Amazing and kept the kids quiet for an... More

Overpriced and unfriendly. All the placards must have been written by a botanist/zoologist/archaeologist because little is in layman terms. Doesn't make for an enjoyable informative read unless you're a scholar.

Great visit to the cave, guide was well informed and there was some spectacular lighting on the stalactites and stalagmites which made for some great photos. Only thing that stopped it from being 5 stars was the group size was too big and slowed things down a little. Good to know that a 2 cave pass is $4 cheaper (for... More
