Take a tour and explore the beauty of the Princess Margaret Rose Cave, often referred as 'the jewel in the crown' of the Lower Glenelg National Park.

This marvellous cave was created by the constant slow drip of rainwater through limestone over thousands of years. River erosion and the trickle of rainwater have created some extraordinary caves in the region. This Caves’ varied hues of crystalline structures come from years of minerals and tannins washing down from soil above. 

Take a ride up the magnificent Glenelg River gorge, either by canoe or on a river cruise and gaze in awe at the stunning limestone cliffs as they glide by. Sixty kilometres of the river flows through the park, with one section displaying 15 kilometre long limestone gorge with 50 metre high cliffs.

Enjoy a 40-minute tour of the cave led by our expert guides and round it off with a walk to the lookout.

Stay in a cabin, pitch a tent, bring a caravan and stay in the grounds at the Princess Margaret Rose Cave. Unpowered sites are available. Permits for camping here are available from Princess Margaret Rose Caves Information Centre –call (08) 8738 4171.
