Beautiful cave formations, friendly and informative staff (our guide Karen was excellent) and the attention to preservation and conservation make the whole area special. Even though there are quite a few steps it is really worth the effort.

The cave system in Margaret River is a "must do" Lake Cave is gobsmacking. Beautiful! Lots of Steps so beware. I think it is 600 steps and they are fairly steep. Worth the effort. You will not be disappointed

Response from Charles V | Reviewed this property |
The Lake is the smallest of the caves so once inside you will do very little walking (less than 100 m) and no manoeuvring and ducking to get to the end of the cave. The Jewel is the opposite. It's huge and heaps of walking... More
