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.

We saw Mother Nature in her very best here. Lake Caves is a must-do if you can only do one cave out of the many in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. The guide was very good in her explanation; even my 9 years old kid had no problems understanding. After a deep 62m descent underground, we are awe-struck with the beautiful... More

My partner and I went out to lake cave one Sunday morning. He took the offical tour and I looked from the constructed deck area into the cavern! Great fun, but not for those that don't like heights.

Our tour guide Deb, really made a great difference to our tour. Very knowledgeable and funny to. The cave is pristine and filled with beautiful formations, some resembling people or animals. The suspended table is beautiful from the back of the cave with the river running underneath it and with the lighting, it just looks mystical. There are a lot... More

Lots of steps down to the entrance and it's a long climb up, consequently you meet your guide at the bottom of the steps at the cave entrance There are not many steps inside the cave, say a flight of 30 steps and 2 flights of 10 steps As the name implies there is a lake in the cave if... More

The highlight for me was the suspended table which is amazing, the tour last for about 1 hour but then you have to climb... More
