  • Margaret River: Lake Cave Fully-Guided Tour

    1. Margaret River: Lake Cave Fully-Guided Tour

    Lake Cave, a stunning and perfectly-preserved chamber deep beneath the earth, is a must-see for all visitors to Margaret River. Descend a long staircase through a spectacular sinkhole to the floor of the sunken forest, gazing up at the towering karri trees along the way. Inside the cave, a tranquil lake reflects delicate crystal formations growing from the cave's ceiling. Droplets hang from the tips of straws and stalactites before falling to the floor or into the lake, creating ripples in the water. Marvel at the unique suspended table formation, which weighs several tons and seems to defy gravity as it hovers above the clear lake water. As your guide changes the focus of the light to different features within the cave, incredible views and silhouettes appear etched in the darkness.

    Loved it, would definitely recommend people to visit. The cave was just absolutely beautiful

  • Augusta: Jewel Cave Fully-Guided Tour

    3. Augusta: Jewel Cave Fully-Guided Tour

    Jewel Cave is the largest show cave in Western Australia, composed of three massive chambers. Visitors are immediately in awe of the sheer enormity of the first chamber, which is also home to one of the longest straw stalactites found in any tourist cave in Australia. Towering crystal formations, growing for many thousands of years, reach up towards delicate and intricate decorations suspended like vines across the ceiling. Hear stories of the "Tasmanian tiger" fossils found in the cave — these animals perished in the darkness after falling into the cave thousands of years ago. After exiting the cave, you'll have the option to take a self-guided walk through the towering karri forest above, during which you'll pass by the natural entrance to the cave, a small vertical shaft in the forest floor.

    Our guide was really good. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour & the cave was amazing. Thank you

    It was a nice day overall. the only sour point for us was that we "didnt have time" to go to "Vasse Virgin", before we went to Wild Hop Brewery. It was disappointing because a few of us were really looking forward to that. We would have spent money there. I just think if you pay $123 for a tour and the places are set before the day, you should go to every place. So essentially we paid for a place that we didn't get to see. Anyway, all the wineries were nice and the food was great. Wild Hop brewery was ok but we were all a bit beat by that time.
