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

Lake cave is interesting. The way down to the cave was awe inspiring. The roof had collapsed & there are huge karri trees growing from the bottom. The interior of the cave was interesting. Not too special compared to the way down on the spiraling steps between the karri trees.

This cave is the best I have seen! Totally worth the trip down the stairs and back up again! Our tour guide Rusty was great! Well done after only 2 days on your own! Thank you!

the tour was excellent and the guide was very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions that were thrown at her. Beware there are a lot of stairs!

My partner and I decided to do a full tour of all three caves (Mammoth, Lake and Jewel), and I can tell you that the Lake Cave was our favourite! The tour guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. He really cared about the cave and explained to us how they were trying to save the last little bit of water... More

Lake cave is a cool cave that is worth the $22 and 45 mins of your time. The 45 min tour was informative about the formation and history of the cave. Really cool formations can be seen throughout the entire cave. Worth a visit.

Not my favourite of the caves personally but well worth seeing & getting a bonus work out on the stairs...we got our tickets when we booked our accommodation & saved $6 each I think with the choice of caves to use it on so worth doing if you plan to visit the caves.

This was the last cave we visited of our Ultimate package and it was definitely a case of saving the best for last. Informative and knowledgable guide helped us understand and appreciate this cave. Well worth all those stairs!

We were led by Crusty who was both funny and informative, through the beautiful Lake Cave. Although $22 per person is pretty pricey, it's definitely worth it as a once in a lifetime sight. Great guides and a beautiful cave, I would highly recommend going here!

Although Lake Cave is the deepest cave around here, it is not worth $22 for a short 40 minute visit. The cave is small and if you wanted more bang for your buck, probably go Mammoth cave or Jewel cave. If you are around the area for a few days and want to visit all 3 caves, then get the... More

Unlike a lot of other caves around Australia, we don't operate with government subsidies. We are a non-profit membership-based tourism organisation and we depend... More
