In 2015 my husband and I went to the Margaret River region for a week with our one-year-old daughter. Iíd been to Margaret River before but had never gotten a chance to visit one of their caves. I thought we wouldnít be able to go with a baby but then we found out about Mammoth Cave. We were told it had ramps and was wheelchair accessible so we could walk through holding our baby in our arms if we wanted. Excited, we packed into our car and off we went.



Mammoth Cave is a 15 minute drive from Margaret River. Itís located on Caves Road in Forest Grove. Itís one of many caves you can visit in the region. When we pulled up the outside of the cave is surrounded by thick forest. There is a wooden ramp that leads to a gift shop.

Perth Crochet Club will host two very special kids crochet classes during the winter holidays that are perfect for children who would love to learn a new hobby.
It costs $22.50 for adults to enter the cave. Children under 4 years are free. Children aged between 4 and 16 are $12.50. Children under the age of 17 have to be with an adult to be able to visit the cave.



Bookings have to be made for large groups. On the day we went it was just the three of us so we paid for our tickets and got given our headphones. You can explore the cave at your own pace. The point is to be your own guide. An audio file will play through your headphones that will explain the history of the cave and how it formed.

The first chamber is wheelchair accessible but the rest of the cave has a lot of stairs although they were easy enough for us to climb while holding our child.

Mammoth Cave is stunningly beautiful with long, pointed stalactites and glittering walls. It was the subject of an archaeological dig in the 1900s.

Mammoth Cave is one of the few caves in the South West that has fossils. In one chamber you can see the jaw bone of a giant extinct marsupial embedded in one of the walls. Itís suspected to be over 50,000 years old.

Mammoth Cave was a fun experience. Weíre heading back to Margaret River again this year. I canít wait to explore some more caves and see how they compare to the stunningly beautiful Mammoth Cave.
