Overview

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.

Really enjoyed this cave visit worth the climb back up the stairs! The use of lights to highlight the features and direct the guided tour without seeing canes everywhere was well done

Every time we go to Margaret River we stop at one or two of the caves. They are absolutely spectacular and each guide makes the tour their own so it’s not exactly the same every time we go. Definite must do when in the area!

Very beautiful with the reflection of rock formations. Different from other dried cave. But you must be fit enough to go down the timbre steps to get to the ground before you get into the cave.

Very pristine and beautiful cave. Our guide Sean was very informative, humourous and engaging. He was also very friendly and helpful, recommending us some more places to visit in the area. We enjoyed his tours and learnt a lot through him!

I could never go into those tunnels but I am fine with these caves. I too am claustrophobic.
