Local wisdom told us to make our one cave tour Jewel Cave and we certainly were not disappointed. Passionate, knowledgeable and experienced guide, amazing formations and interesting stories. Well worth a visit. Be aware there are quite a few stairs and tight squeezes through a few sections, although you do get to rest on platformed areas along your tour.

We loved Jewel Cave. It is spectacular. The guide was very informative. We were lucky to be in a small group of six. Apparent sometimes there is fourth. That is hard to imagine as even with a group of suit was Just a tad rushed. A must Ser.

Must do! Jewel cave is absolutely stunning. We didn't book and were able to do a tour in a small group of about 12 people. Karen, our guide, was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun, informative and interesting. Make sure your camera is fully charged because you will literally take hundreds of photos. Take your time and really appreciate... More

Toured Jewel Cave with my wife and 2 children and we all found the tour to be enjoyable and very informative. Our friendly guide (Deb) was fantastic and had a wonderful knowledge of the cave. She took the time to answer our children's many questions. Highly recommended.

I've wanted to go here for a while and finally made it! Mother Nature is awesome, the caves are well kept and a fairly easy climb/descent. Well worth the entry fee.

We took the single cave tour which took one hour. Highly recommend for something different! We drive up and down Caves Road all the time and who knew these amazing places existed beneath!

A totally amazing place just 12 meters underground, the guided tour is worth the entrance fee. There are quite a few steps up and down, but worth the effort.

My daughter (20) and me had visited Lake Cave, which was already amazingly beautiful, and we asked the guide Karen which cave would be the most beautiful. Of course she couldn't choose, but she said she would guide at Jewel Cave that same afternoon. We didn't need a lot to convince but off we went to Jewel Cave. The road... More

This was our favourite of the 4 caves. we WEre initially disappointed as we didn't book and then had come back again the next day. It is the furthest cave from Margaret River - so if you go the Leeuwin Lighthouse - Jewel cave is good to tie in with that as they are close by.

With so many cave tours to choose from in the south west region of WA, it can be hard to make up your mind. But I think if you have to choose, then Jewel Cave is THE best. We had some time to kill prior to our guided tour at 12.30, so we chose to eat lunch first. The cafe... More
