Lake Cave is a stunning crystal wonderland and the only cave in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge with a permanent lake. 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.

No fancy lights which was great for highlighiting the natural beauty of the cave. Quite a few steps so not for those with bad knees!

Photos and reviews don't do this place justice. It was simply amazing! The tour guide was so lovely and knowledgeable. Certainly worth the $22.50 we spent (which we thought was a little pricey before we went in). This can't be missed!!

What a marvel this place is. A great welcome at the Information Centre followed by a moving informative tour by a great guide. Lots of steps down to the cave but well worth it. Best BLT at the Cafe afterwards to finish off a great experience.

All the "show caves" in the area are spectacular, but a guide can really enhance your appreciation of the individual features of each one. The cave is astoundingly beautiful, but our guide Alan helped to make it even more special with his sensitive commentary and suggestions. Definitely worth an unhurried visit.

We visited Lake Cave today - once inside the views and sights are spectacular. Photography is welcomed (preferably without a flash), but the photos come out fine without the flash on. Be aware though, there are 300 steps down (and then you have to go back up again). People who struggle with steps may find this cave a challenge!

Due to the limited time we had in the area, we decided to visit only Lake Cave. We were in awe with the amazing sights inside the cave. The guide and lighting set up make it even more amazing. A must visit if you enjoy natural beauty but be prepared to have a little exercise climbing up and down a... More

This was a very beautiful cave both above and below ground. The water in the cave makes this cave different to the others in the area. The guide was very helpful, but there are a lot of steps to go up and down
