Beyond wine and surfing and food, the Margaret River is also famous for its enormous cave system. One of the grandest is the appropriately-named Mammoth Cave in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, surrounded by Karri and Marri forests. About 1,640 feet long and 100 feet deep, the vast chambers of the cave weren’t explored until 1895. Mammoth Cave is an impressive, gothic-like cavern that begins via an elevated boardwalk leading into its gaping mouth. State-of-the-art MP3 audio headset rentals guide you through the cave’s incredible features and history, pointing out carefully-lit animal bones and fossils. Listening to the stories about extinct animals including Australia’s Tasmanian tiger and the extraordinary megafauna (giant mammals) is sure to send shivers up your spine.
