From Mammoth Cave:
Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described as the perfect home for a caveman. Tours are self-guided with an audio headset and begin via an elevated boardwalk through towering karri forest. As you journey through the spectacular formations, lookout for the carefully lit animal bones and fossils and listen to the stories about extinct animals. Wildflowers are abundant around the precinct from September to November. Located 18km south of Margaret River.
Look at the fabulous photos on the Tripadvisor website. They have taken a lot of time to get the best photos …. far more than I could do:
