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.

You can only visit this cave with a tour guide. The cave itself is great, however, the sheer numbers in our group made taking pictures next to impossible. By the time those at the end of the group had made it to the talking point, the lights had faded and pictures were impossible. The group itself had a number of... More

Enjoyed Lake Cave and all it's steps hence the title. Would recommend as worth a visit, talked to others who had been to other caves in the area and said this was the best.

Dear 3ana, Thanks for posting your valuable feedback about your trip to Lake Cave. Our caves are an excellent activity for a rainy day, as you say. Visitors are outside in the beautiful forest for the walk down to the cave but most of the tour is undercover. We'll pass on your compliments to our wonderful cave guide, Jacqui! All... More

My family and I had a great time on Saturday morning going on our little adventure into the cave. Alan our tour guide had lots of knowledge and was more than happy to answer any questions we had about all the amazing formations and wildlife within the cave. Amazing stuff, well worth the time and effort :).

On our recent visit to Perth, we decided to go around the Margaret River area & decided to visit the Lake Cave. It is a wonderful natural cave discovered in the early 1900's or late 1800's but the lost as they couldn't find it again for almost half a century. We had a very nice guide - I think her... More

Dear Donna Lynette, Thanks for taking the time to post your valuable feedback about your visit to Lake Cave. We're glad you enjoyed your visit Just a couple of things to point out - you're right about wheelchair accessibility but it's at Mammoth Cave, not Jewel Cave. We charge a reduced entry fee for wheelchair access to the first huge... More

It is well worth the effort of going down into the cave, not good for those scared of heights (trip down) or confined spaces (entry into cave).

Everything was great aside from the stairs down, but once your in the cave you forget everything. Very knowledgeable tour guide, could explain all the science as well behind what's happening and the history of the cave. Loved the 'cave creatures' and the light show.

I love a good cave and in my opinion, if you don't have time for any others then make sure you do make time for this treat! Even though this is not the same scale at Jewel cave (it's much smaller) the reflections of the stalactites over the water is absolutely beautiful
