It acts as a mirror of infinite reflections that is truly magical. The cave is renowned for the ‘Suspended Table’ – a five tonne column of calcite that hangs from the ceiling just a few centimetres above the lake. The precinct features impressive retail, interpretative and cafe facilities. Located 25 kilometres south of Margaret River. « less

The entrance to this cave is an incredible sight and the history and stories were really interesting. Very informative guide with interesting facts about cave life and the fragile systems.

If you only have time to visit one cave, this is it. Not all caves have lakes in them, so this is special. There is also a 'suspended table' which is the only one in the world. You would need to go down about 300 steps to this cave and on your way down you will pass karri tress and... More

As others have said, you need to be able to manage stairs for this tour, but it is hardly a difficult walk since it is only a few hundred steps taken at a slow pace on the way in, and at your own pace on the way out. With these caves being active with plenty of water, there is a... More

I love exploring caves and this was no exception. The tour guide was so informative and entertaining. Even the walk down was beautiful. I found the steps quite a struggle on the way back up but no one rushed us. The tour guide leaves you at the base so you can take your time. They even tell you to enjoy... More

We drove back from a whale watching tour in Augusta to Margaret River via the scenic Caves Road, and stopped to take in the Lake Cave. We were pleased we did, although visitors should be aware that there are a lot of steps to negotiate to get down to the cave, and also back up again. We enjoyed the underground... More

Very beautiful crystal formations, guide was informative and helpful. At the end of the tour, there was a moment where all lights are switched off. The peace and quiet you can experience is incredible!

Really enjoyed this tour. There are lots of steps, but not too bad if you take your time on the way back :-) Plenty of formations including teh suspended table, a very rare sight.
