This natural time capsule offers an extraordinary insight into Australia’s ancient past.
Mammoth Cave has wheelchair access to the first chamber. Pick up your MP3 self-guided audio tour to get started; available in English, German and Mandarin.
Entering the cave through bushland via a gently sloping boardwalk, you’ll realise just how much there is to see here. Over 10,000 fossils had at one time accumulated inside the cave; upon excavating many of these were found to be remains of Australian Megafauna (giant animals) that became extinct around 46,000 years ago.
There is even a 50,000 year old ‘zygomaturus’ jawbone embedded in the cave wall.
If you visit during winter, you will see a stream flowing through the cave which is stained red from natural tannins. As you leave the cave, complete your tour with a walk along the beautiful Marri trail.
