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

Love the easy banter and humour of the guide. The cave is still actively growing! Some minor exertion is involved.

This is one of those tours where you are guided so you have to move at the same pace as the group and stay within the time frame. The tour was very informative and well organised but think the numbers allowed on each tour is a bit high as there is limited space in the caves. The tour also has... More

We went as a rest from wine tasting. The tour is about an hour long. Staff were friendly and the tour is very informative. There are some great photo opportunities of this World famous Cave. There are many stairs so if you have issues with high or climbing stairs be aware.

Well explored cave with pretty light features, many tourists and busy guided tour- definitely worth a look but I personally prefer the larger self-guided more adventurous local cave options.

My partner and i bought the 3 cave deal and visited the lake cave first. We were happily greeted by staff and guided by Allen through this wonderful cave. Very happy with the experience! Tour guide was knowledgable and friendly. Thanks for a great time!

Very expensive, in the end my family has spent AU$ 110.00, and the worst is the tourist guide (Neroli) was accelerating every one, inclusive an elderly lady with visible mobility problems. Not recommend, better to spend your money elsewhere.

We debated guided cave tour or self-guided, but I was really pleased this was the one we chose. The guide was very enthusiastic and conveyed a sense of awe about the cave he was showing us. There were only 5 of us in the group and that was a nice size for feeling some of the atmosphere of the cave,... More

Lake cave is interesting. The way down to the cave was awe inspiring. The roof had collapsed & there are huge karri trees growing from the bottom. The interior of the cave was interesting. Not too special compared to the way down on the spiraling steps between the karri trees.

This cave is the best I have seen! Totally worth the trip down the stairs and back up again! Our tour guide Rusty was great! Well done after only 2 days on your own! Thank you!
