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.

Breathtaking

It really is worth a visit but while the cave itself is breathtaking be warned that the steps on the way back up are also breathtaking!! It's tough but it's so worth it.

Thank you Alan for an amazingly informative and fun tour. Well worth a hectic descent and even the drastic climb out was not bad enough to leave a negative impression!! Will return.

Really worth visiting, so beautiful. Many stairs down to the cave so you need to feel fit enough to do it! Coming back up was harder but there are plenty of seats on the way where you can rest. We did the first tour at 9.30am so there were only 5 of us on the tour and it was perfect.... More

It was something my husband wanted to do. The cave in Eslovenia is 1,000 % more exciting a pretty. This was ok. I do not reccomend.

We enjoyed a fantastic guided tour through this amazing cave with Rusty. Very informative yet not rushed. Although the rain arrived outside, the lighting and reflections were beautiful inside. Highly recommended.

A really unique and beautiful cave. Compared with Jewel cave, it's much smaller. Most of the walking is just getting to the cave entrance!

Caves are cool and there are many to choose from and surprising not all caves are alike. Guided, self-guided, crawly, lit, unlit using a torch etc, depends what you're after or how energetic you are. In the end we chose the Lakes Cave and a good choice it was too. Very reasonably priced and well worth the low $20 entry... More

We visited 2 caves on the same day and were really impressed by the beauty of this one. It is the smallest cave in the region but really worth the visit. The guide was also really nice with good anecdotes to tell
