Mammoth Cave (Western Australia)
Mammoth Cave is a large limestone cave 21 km south of the town of Margaret River in south-western Western Australia, and about 300 km south of Perth. It lies within the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and is surrounded by Karri and Marri forest.
The cave is 500 m long and 30 m deep. It has been known from about 1850 to European settlers of the Margaret River district, but it was not explored until 1895. Its first explorer Tim Connelly, who was appointed caretaker of the cave, conducted tours by lamplight until 1904 when electric lighting was installed.
The cave has been checked for fossils for over a hundred years
