Jewel Cave -
Margaret River/Augusta Area


Ho Hum, just another Limestone cave, however this is no ho hum cave, it may be the best cave we have seen in Australia and we have seen caves in almost every state of Australia.  The cave is cavernous and has the longest straw stalactite, I'm told, in the world at over 5.4m.  Further it has a huge flowstone resembling a karri forest and also a stalagmite weighing in at an estimated weight of 20 tonnes.  Fossilized remains  of Tasmanian tigers have also been found in the cave.    Hopefully the photos below give justice to this amazing cave.
