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

I've seen a lot of caves in many different countries, but this one is as beautiful as any I've seen. The guide (Rusty) was knowledgeable and very friendly. The highlight was the stalactite column suspended above the lake floor.

It may have been that our guide was taciturn at best but this was not the most enjoyable of cave explorations. The cave is very interesting and has some great things to see but after being severely chastised for the part we played in the extinction of the thylacine, the whole experience was a little overwhelming. Still having the full... More

This cave is smaller but more stunning. The entrance is enough to say WOW. Really beautiful and we all got to sit in the dark! !!

This baby cave is so pretty, with lots of stalactite forming into different shapes, you just need to use your imagination to see here and there a dragon, a puppy or some kind of mushrooms :) Highlight of the tour is when all lights in the cave are turned off (you are even required to make sure there are no...

My friend ventured into the cave and said it was the highlight of her trip. My slight claustrophobia (and lack of stair-fitness) put me off, so I waited in the Tearoom with some excellent scones and tea, and chatted to the lovely people working there.

This was a pretty little, but interesting cave, nevertheless. There were many steps before the cave entrance - so the not so fit should beware.

A unique experience touring inside the cave, stunning shapes of stalactites and stalagmites. Wonderful lake, lovely settings of light, friendly guides makes it a memorable part of my travel.

Very special event. Cave was very pretty. But the surrounding area was equally impressive. Walking was easy.

I visited the cave without knowing what to expect. There were 350 steps going down and of course on the way up too. I'm not very fit but managed the steps quite well. The cave is quite amazing and the talk provided by Neroli was interesting. I didn't' visit the other caves in the area so can't compare but thought... More

This cave is simply stunning. The table formation is well worth the trip. Those not interested in going down the 300 steps can experience the inside of a cave with the displays in the interpretative centre. The glass viewing platform is well worth a look.
