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.

Very imformative tour guide. Amazing views of the formations in the caves. Steps were harder to climb than the Jewel Cave, but well worth it.

A true natural wonder! The guide was very informative, passionate and friendly. There are over 300 stairs so you need to be able to walk up and down stairs with ease. It was beautiful and an educational experience. I would definitely recommend it!

Really well run and organised natural wonder. It was busy when we went - which was school holidays - and some were having to wait a while to get on a tour. We booked ours at Mammoth Cave so got the time we wanted.

We were staying in a resort on 'Caves Road' Margaret River. To say the caves are spectacular is an understatement. It does help to be reasonably fit as there are a number of steps to negotiate. Also if you are claustrophobic or fear the dark,...More

This was the first cave we visited in this area and we appreciated the information we learned, the friendly and helpful staff at the ticket office. There are several steps to climb but getting down to the lake level is really worthwhile.

Dear Janine45, Thanks for the feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your tour. 450 years sounds more like the maximum age of the giant Karri trees that tower over Lake Cave's entrance. The cave itself is about a million years old. The first record of European...More

Yes. There are lots of stairs to get down to the cave and then you climb them back up. There’s only one part of the stairs you go backwards so you don’t bang your head.
