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.

We found the visit to Lake Cave interesting and stunning. The 300 or so steps down and 300 back up were worth it and there were landings where points of interest could be viewed.

The cave was absolutely beautiful...seriously it was amazing and I couldn't say a bad word about it. The staff are friendly, the tour guide (Liam) was super helpful and I personally enjoyed every moment of the tour. The 350 steps are a bit of a challenge haha ... but it's totally worth it!

It is a relatively small cave but it is worth paying for the admission price. Beautiful stalactites & stalagmites. Also the suspended table is an absolute wonder. Great for photos. Only bad point, the number of stairs. Going down is fine but must take your time coming up!

Visited 3 of the famous caves on Caves Road down near Margaret River. Super worth it go down and up to the Caves. Great guides for Lake Cave, mr Crusty (hopefully i spell his name right) is fun guide!! The cave itself geared with beautiful lights effect, emphasising its' nature beauty. I do hope we had more time inside the... More

Lake cave is my most favourite cave. It's not as big but it has water! There's beautiful reflections of the formations. It's simple but yet so peaceful. It's good exercise too, as you need to descend over 300 steps to get into it and get back up!

a worth while spot to visit to view the wonders of the cave system of the south west area. The photographic scenery was wonderful and we regularly revisit most times we go south for holidays or weekends away. We have taken many overseas and eastern states visitors with us and they have found the experience amazing as well.

Lake Cave was amazing!!! The tour was great and our guide Ricky was very knowledgable. The formations inside are beautiful, but it was also awesome to be enveloped by the darkness of the cave when the lights were out. The stairs weren't too taxing. Would definitely visit again.

A relatively easy cave to access. The star is the Table formed when stalagmites spread on the ground, join a stalactite to form a column and then the floor is washed away underneath. Absolutely beautiful and incredible to think the suspended weight is 5-6 tons.
