Mammoth Cave

See the ancient fossil remains of Australian megafauna in this limestone cave, known as one of the region’s most accessible show caves.

Mammoth Cave is a beautiful geographic wonder with an important paleontological history. This cave was the site of many ancient remains discovered in the early 20th century. It once contained about 10,000 fossils. Learn about these important discoveries and the history of this remarkable cave on a self-guided audio tour.

Explore the majestic chambers and passages of Mammoth Cave. The cave is close to many other attractions in the Boranup nature site, including a hedge maze grown from native shrubs and vegetation. Visit a nearby forest to see some of the tallest trees in the world, known as karri trees.

Self-guided audio tours include in-depth scientific information and are included in your entrance fee. Learn about the fossil remains of giant animals, known as Australian megafauna. These animals are believed to have become extinct approximately 46,000 years ago. Before excavation, more than 10,000 fossils had accumulated in Mammoth Cave.

See the fossilised jawbone of a zygomaturus embedded in the limestone walls. The remains of this giant marsupial species are believed to be about 50,000 years old. Self-guided tours conclude with a bushwalk through the stunning marri forest, known for its birdlife and exquisite flora displays.

Explore the nearby Boranup karri forest, a beautiful natural area featuring some of the world’s tallest trees, known as karri trees. Some of these trees are more than 60 metres (200 feet) tall. The forest also features walking trials and a hard limestone tourist drive, called Boranup Drive. Observe the colourful wildflowers on the forest floor and an abundant birdlife in the surrounding trees.

Find Mammoth Cave in Boranup, approximately 14 kilometres (9 miles) from Margaret River. Those coming from Augusta will find the cave about 37 kilometres (23 miles) from the town. Discounted admission fees apply for families. The cave is one of the most easily accessible tourist caves in the region, making it great for children and visitors with limited mobility.

Stop at Mammoth Cave to see the fossil remains of giant Australian animals and to experience some of the region’s most scenic bushwalking areas.
