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.

I came to this cave last week and it was so fantastic! going down was so easy, but climbing up the stairs was so hard. Its very easy for people with good stamina to climb up and down quickly. The view of the natural limestone with lights, no lights and coloured lights all made a difference to this natural place.... More

This cave is spectacular in every way. Some parts of the cave you will not see in any other cave in Australia. It is not a large cave but is well worth the visit. There are a large number of stairs so it is quite a climb to get back out but there are plenty of places to rest. Our... More

Lovely setting as you descend into the bowels of the Earth to visit this cave. We had a delightful guide who certainly added to the visit. The steps coming out are a tough climb for anyone with a physical fitness issue (me!) or little legs of children. Take it slowly, stop on the way and enjoy the view.

Lots of fun if you bring your friends. You feel like a bit of an adventurer exploring underground in a giant cave. Very cool experience.

To be seen to be believed. The hike up and down was well worth it in the end. The lake at the bottom of the cave was surreal.

Amazing Cave to visit. Already the view on the way from the Tourist center to the Cave is breathtaking with all this tall trees. The Cave itself is really beautiful – the highlight is the “hanging table”. The tour guide was very informative.

Beautiful cave with stalagmites and a small lake. Comes with a word of warning - 300 steep steps to climb. Absolutely worth it.

I'm not a lover of heights or confined spaces but I thoroughly enjoy this caving experience. The price was good though you do need to book to ensure you don't miss out.
