Jewel Cave, Augusta

4.8
#1 of 17 in Things to do in Augusta
Witness the artistry of nature in Jewel Cave. On your guided tour of the four expansive chambers, you'll see straw stalactites billed as the longest in any tourist-accessible cave in the world. Thicker stalactites also reach for the floor of the cave, creating the illusion of a melting ceiling. The space inside is relatively open, and the path easy to negotiate. After you emerge from the cave, walk through the stand of towering Karri (eucalyptus) trees surrounding the site. The Preservation Centre here has interpretive information and a cafe. Tours run frequently. To visit Jewel Cave on your holiday in Augusta, and find out what else Augusta has to offer, use our Augusta day trip tool .

  • Cool place to go for anyone, single, couple or with kids. It's quite fascinating and beautiful. Just note that there are a bunch of steps going down into the cave but it's not hugely exhausting at all.
  • A must do in the region! We visited Mammoth Cave and Jewel Cave. Both were magnificent and out of this world. Our guide Rachel was superb and made the experience enjoyable and interesting. Highly recommend!
