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

we visited jewel, lake and mammoth caves in one day and were pleasantly surprised to find each quite different in comparison. would definitely recommend doing at least one of the cave tours as these caves are like magical lost cities right underneath our feet!

Even if you have been to many other caves, this one is well worth a visit. It is very beautiful and quite unique. As others have mentioned there are many stairs to get down to the cave (and back up again!) but don't let this put you off. The tour actually finishes before you climb back up all the stairs... More

We visited Jewel, Lake and Mammoth caves and I recommend seeing them all as they all have their attractions. The guides were pleasant and knowledgeable too. Be warned though, there's a lot of steps to climb, particularly at Lake cave. You can buy a ticket for the three caves or a ticket which also includes the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse.

Our tour guide was lovely and very knowledgable. We'll worth the climb for the beautiful view. Would not recommend for people with children under 8

We choose to do 1 cave tour compared to doing all 3 in the area. The cost for Lake Cave was $22 each which was great value for what we saw. After walking down 300 stairs, we were created by Karen - who was soooo lovely, a great story teller and very funny! She didn't rush you when you wanted... More

Going down wasnt hard and oh so spectacular! The caves were a bit different to others we have seen with the water at the bottom giving lovely reflections. And yes the climb up was hard but well worth it!

We've been to about 9 caves worldwide and this one is great for all and is very accessible. Our tour guide was very informative and passionate about her work. She was interactive and encouraged conversation and questions, especially with the kids. Great place to spend your morning.

Stunning cave with spectacular views with lots of Stalactites and Stalagmites. There is a lot of stairs to negotiate but it is worth the effort. Our guide, Crusty, was very informative and funny and full of enthusiasm and information. It is well worth a visit and highly recommended.

Unbelievably beautiful to visit. The tour was informative and friendly. We took our sons - 5 and 8 years old and they were able to manage the stairs without much trouble, but I wouldn't recommend it for younger children as there are a lot of steep stairs.
