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.

My partner and I went out to lake cave one Sunday morning. He took the offical tour and I looked from the constructed deck area into the cavern! Great fun, but not for those that don't like heights.

The suspended table is beautiful from the back of the cave with the river running underneath it and with the lighting, it just looks mystical. There are a lot... More

Lots of steps down to the entrance and it's a long climb up, consequently you meet your guide at the bottom of the steps at the cave entrance There are not many steps inside the cave, say a flight of 30 steps and 2 flights of 10 steps As the name implies there is a lake in the cave if... More

We have to go down the stairs (and up the stairs) quite a bit to finally enter the cave. Take it as an exercise for the day! The inside of the cave is an awesome sight with beautiful light up. The guide was knowledgeable to share with us the history of the cave. We could experience the darkness of the... More
