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

A beautiful way to spend an hour. We loved visiting this cave, our tour guide was lovely and the cave was breathtaking. Well worth the stop! We didn't see any of the other caves in the area so can't compare but definitely loved our trip into the sunken Forrest and cave.

We brought the ultimate pass which included the mammoth, lake, jewel cave and the lighthouse tour. Each cave was unique and our guide Crusty was very informative and at times very entertaining which made the tour just that extra special.

This provided a contrast to the Jewel Cave we had visited before and was worth visiting as well. As the name suggests it still has sitting water in the cave (thankfully with the level having come up a fair bit after reasonable winter rains). There are quite a few steps in and out to get to the cave. For older... More

The lake cave entrance is spectacular as it consists of a long series of stairs to get down to the entrance to the underground section of the cave. These steps are in a part of the cave where the roof of a very large cavern collapsed. To give an indication of the size, at the bottom of the steps is... More

We visited the Lake Cave after seeing the Jewel Cave earlier in the week. Both tours were fantastic, and our Lake cave guide Allan was interesting and informative. It is quite a walk down to the opening of the cave- which you will have to walk up again- but we had quite a few older travellers in our group and... More

The view is stunning! The whole tour took around 1 hour, the tour guide, mr Steven is knowledgable and welcoming. Worthy to try other cave. I and my friend said so.

There are a lot of steps down to the entrance of this cave, then another flight down into the cave. We had a very nice guide. Once inside the walking is along a board walk. The formations are fascinating. When we came out again we could ascend the steps at our own pace, and there were some resting areas. Well... More

If you like environment you definitely can enjoy in this cave, has beautiful lakes inside it. If you have luck you can find small strange animals on the rocks or in the lakes.

Great cave for kids I thought. Yes there are a lot of steps to get down to cave (300) - but it's a pretty short straightforward walk through the car when you're there. My 4year old loved it! Will definitely go back and explore the other caves too on our next trip.

We went to Lake Cave on a whim one Sunday afternoon when we were staying down south. The tour lasts about thirty minutes and is absolutely breathtaking for at least twenty five of them (that is also due in part to the many stairs you have to walk along). The cave was stunning. Our guide Trish was friendly and very... More
