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.

A beautiful, inspiring and tranquil cave, though lots of steps, going down is fine but if you are not an energetic kid or reasonably fit adult then take it easy. Well worth it though as its just magical. A great little cafe up top too for refreshments after the tour of the cave.

Great visit, very busy as it was a long weekend, but worth the wait. Deb was a great guide. The lighting display on the formations was really spectacular.

Husband and I really enjoyed our tour of Lake Cave. The cave itself was very interesting and pretty. The formations generally were very good with the spectacular suspended table a site to see. We were also impressed with the very pretty straw formations hanging from the roof. The tour guide Deb was excellent. Lots of steps - about 300 of... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Lake Cave today, Deb was an excellent guide. Beautiful formations and amazing reflections. Lots of steps but we are a couple of seniors and managed with a few timely stops to admire the scenery on the way back up. Definitely worth going to!

Wonderful visit...I highly recommend this cave. Chantelle was a prefect guide. I liked that it was a small group on the tour.

Our experience at the Lake Cave was literally awesome. There are interesting informational displays, a convenient tea room, a beautiful deck over-looking the cave entrance, and an amazing guided tour of a stunning cave with a reflective lake inside. However, as they tell you when you purchase your ticket, there are a lot of stairs, and the climb back up... More

Great cave, good guide. We've toured quite a few caves around Aus and this compares favourably. Need a fair level of fitness though as there are a lot of steps to climb.

The stairs could be a challenge for older people, but the cave is worth the walk down and back up the stairs. The cave is small, but full of mother natures wonders! Our guide (Tom) obviously loved his job and this showed throughout our tour - he remembered my little grand-daughters name and he allowed all the children to be... More

Thanks to Deb, our guide who took us into Lake Cave and gave us the history of the formation of the cave and the wonders of limestone. Come and try how it feels to sit in the cave, listening to the drops of water in darkness. A beautiful experience for me.
