In case you are awed by the pictures, let me tell you that I have not done even 1% justice to the place. And there are many such caves in the Margaret River region – 150 caves to be precise. These caves are formed by drainage of water through limestones.

Coming back the cave we visited – The Jewel cave, known for its amazing jewel casket having jewel-like formation and hence the name.
