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.

Very pretty cave. Well worth the 642 steps. Gorgeous reflections from the water. Interesting suspended table. Look out for the cave dragon.

If your in the Margaret River area go to the Lake Cave, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. The walk down to the cave is pretty awesome, be prepared for the steps there's lots of them. The climb back up can be hard if your not fit. Great cave, good lighting, good tour guides, takes about 1 hour. Overall a... More

The lake cave is beautiful especially with the underground lake and the spectacular formations, the suspended table is absolutely spectacular and unique. The guide was helpful and informative but before you go you need to be aware f the stairs. You could take your time coming back up but if you struggle with stairs you can see through then you...

We chose this cave to visit out of all caves that were on offer and were not disappointed with the nature surrounding the entrance, the cave itself and the information display. My kids really enjoyed the cave crawl sample that is in their info area.

It was an interesting experience to visit and tour this very uniquely formed cave. The three hundred over steps may be "challenging" for some old folks, but it is worthwhile a visit as in between there were rest area too. With some special effect lighting, this made the cave comes alive with magical feel. The "suspended table" was the most... More

A must see when in Margaret river- fab tour. We were 5 minutes late for our tour but there was no issues giving us a slot of the next available. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The cave was jaw dropping. Looking forward to visiting other caves
