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 hanging cliff view was stunning even before the tour began. Its a guided tour. And our guide Oscar was awesome and made the tour lots of fun. Amazing cave formations. There are like 160 steps, so get proper footwear.

The first truly "wet" cave I have ever seen. The 250 stairs down to the entrance are easy going down....but you have lots of time to get up again. All worth it just to see that suspended table. Lots of other formations and things to see. You better get here who knows how long that table will remain suspended. Allow... More

Lake Cave was ace, very beautiful, as was the mega fauna displays in the info area. Sure love me some mega fauna! Shout out to their tour guide Oscar, who managed to be charismatic and amusing as well as very informative all in the same breath.

We did the three cave pass for $55 for Jewel, Lake and Mammoth caves - each cave is $22 otherwise. You can also include the lighthouse for $70. All 3 caves are unique so well worth a visit to all 3. They are well signposted from Caves Rd so easy to find. You have to visit on a tour and... More

Dear Marguerite C, Thanks for taking the time to post your feedback here. We're glad you liked the cave and well done getting through the stairs. There are a decent number of stairs but we've put rest benches all the way back up so you can catch your breath. We've positioned them so that you can take in the stunning... More
