A must do when in the region. The cave is the largest in the region and is absolutely amazing. A lot of steps to climb but easily managed. Photo opportunities galore. And even on a very hot day, the cave is a constant cool and comfortable temperature. We managed to see all 4 tourist caves in the region and can't... More

The cave itself is absolutely stunning and breathtaking. Well worth the hard work out and exercise. The guide who took the group was very knowledgable and able to answer the groups questions.

Easy to locate on the way to Augusta or Hamiln bay to watch the sting rays! Guided tour by very experienced staff. Good cafe to get a bite if hungry. The cave itself is an amazing natural cave, apparently one of the newly found and hence still very pristine. Fossils of a Tasmanian tiger was found inside. You can still... More

We took our four and five year old to the cave and they easily navigated the steps. The cave was amazing with plenty of photo opportunities. James was our guide and was very informative. Well worth doing.

Just eight kilometres from Augusta is Jewel Cave, only discovered in 1958. I nearly drove past but luckily I turned off just as it opened. The caves are spectacular and our guide Crusty was very knowledgeable. Take the time to see this amazing natural phenomenon.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable tour through Jewel Cave with Ricki. Tour duration about 45 mins. Constant walking with a few rest stops for viewing. An easy pace, nothing too strenuous. Very impressive cave with great formations and good lighting.

This is one of many caves in the area. It has guided tours at set times. The guide was a fount of information about the caves. There are lots of steps down and back, and some overhanging rocks to be careful of. The formations are great. Well worth a visit.
