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.

The tour around lake cave was spectacular. Good value for money and thoroughly enjoyable. My only offshore is that is only a small cave. I know they can't tunnel the cave to make it larger but there are larger caves in the world that would score a 5 rating in my book. I just wanted to explain why I only... More

If you don't mind a walk "down" into a massive hole(doline) you will be impressed with what is at the end! This was the second cave of our holiday visit and to stand inside this cave and know that it was still "growing" was a great feeling of time. These caves are under threat of the water table dropping and... More

If with the long walk down and back up all those stairs, it was well worth it. The guide was very informative.

Its a very beautiful place - scenic, quiet and calm. Definitely worth the visit. Going in and down to the cave was easy but getting back out will challenge your fitness level with about 280+ steps. Well, at least you get your workout sorted after the awesome visit. It wasnt a long walk in the cave. About 85m long and... More

Lake cave is a beautiful cave with a natural stream running through the length of the cave. The worlds only known 'suspended table' and a range of amazing geological formations. There are many steps down into a sunken garden that was once a cave itself and then a few more down into the cave. No need to worry about the... More

A great cave to visit. The lake in the cave was at a high level so it was amazing. Well worth a visit! Lots of steps to get down to it however, very easy walking in the cave. The reflections in the water are magical.

Declining 60 m below the surface reveals a cave approx 30m long and 5 m wide. There is a stream running through the middle creating a mirror for the many well preserved features. The guide was very informative and allowed sufficient time for you to capture photos of the stunning features. The tour took about 45 mins and was very... More

This was definitely the highlight of our week in Margaret River. The cave system is amazing and our tour guide, Oscar, was entertaining and very knowledgeable about the caves and area while still managing to captivate even the young children on our tour. Thank you so much for the tour and we definitely recommend this cave and the others in... More
