Mammoth Caves,Margaret River Region

 On the same day too we visited the Mammoth Caves 
in the Margaret River Region

 as the name suggests, it is MAMMOTH!!!

 We enter the cave through bushland via a gently sloping boardwalk
(words from the brochure)
 streams flowing through the cave stained with natural tannins

 Over 100000 fossils had at one time accumulated inside the cave, upon excavating many of these were found to be remains of giant animals that became extinct.
This is a 50,000 year old jawbone embedded in the cave wall.
 Beautiful stalactites
 weird formations over the years

 and stalagmites

 so awesome

 looks dangerous too!

 a really cavernous cave!!

There are many other caves but we only had time to see one.
Margaret River is home to over 100 caves!
