Loved this mistake! It had been suggested that I visit Mammoth Cave (which I'm sure is very worthwhile seeing) but owing to a slightly muddled memory I went to Giant's Cave instead.
When I bought my ticket I was warned that there were ladders to...More

Love your response- we love the Giants adventure too! Maybe next time if you would like a slightly different experience to Mammoth Cave again, visit Calgardup Cave where we will also issue you with torches and Helmets- but it's a prettier cave and not so...More
We took the whole family, down to 7 years old (6 is the minimum), we went the full length but many families piked out and turned around about 10 minutes in. If you go past this point there is no going back, you go up...More

Glad you and your family enjoyed your experience. The way the cave ladders were installed means that once you commit to climbing them (start about half way through the cave) that you are only climbing up which is much safer than having to climb down...More
I loved it! There was a lot of climbing and sometimes it was a bit hard to do one handed. But as long as you have someone to go with, you can light each other’s way. May be difficult on smaller kids. There were a...More
My husband I had traversed Giants Cave while staying in Margaret River and sight seeing the beautiful Cave Road. This was great fun and a highlight of our stay. The tour is self guided and it is well described as an adventure. My husband is...More

Really happy to hear that you enjoyed your experiences at both Giants and Calgardup Caves. Thank you for the great review.
Self guided tour. Tickets are approximately $18 but is well worth the adventure!
You get a helmet and torch and walk though cave which is actually pretty cool so maybe bring a jumper/jacket (you should also wear closed in shoes and leave your hat and...More

We're really happy that you enjoyed your experience. Great tip to bring something warm that you can tie around your waist when you get hot- the temperature is around 17-18 C but the humidity is very high at 95% and as you move through the...More
Giant cave, $18.00 per person. Self guided, you are given a hard hat with a light on it and a torch. Instructions was to what to expect and where to go. They should really tell you that it is quiet hard and can be awkward...More

I don't think this would be one to tackle if you are pregnant. You need to be relatively nimble, as you need to climb over rocks, move through tight spaces and climb several ladders. I'm quite small, but a bit clumsy, so I found this very challenging! There is other caves in the area that have steps and flat areas that are equally spectacular!

it is difficult for us to quantify what a 'larger sized person' is. We have had taller people as well as more rotund people visit the cave without any problems. The real issue is a person's health and fitness. The cave goes down to a depth of 86 m (the equivalent of a 30 story building) and as you are going through the cave you go up and down to that depth twice. Along the way you must climb vertical ladders and scramble/climb over rocks. Most of the cave consists of large chambers. The tight spots are in the ladder climbs which start half way through the cave. We advise people that if they feel uncomfortable to continue from that point, that they should turn around and head back out the way they came in back up the entrance stairs. It takes about 1 hour to go through the entire cave and as it is a natural feature, there are no 'emergency exits'. We provide you with enough information at the entrance to give you all the information you need to travel through the cave in a safe manner if you decide to continue on. If you would like a cave that is still more of a natural experience with torches and helmets but don't want the strenuous bits, Calgardup Cave is 6km's north from Giants Cave and also much prettier. Calgardup is open every day of the year (except Christmas and Boxing days) 9am-4.15pm daily. I hope this has been helpful to you.
