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.

A great tour with moments of absolute stillness! From start to finish a very informative and great tour. I felt like I was stepping back in time.

This cave is incredible. It's hard to describe the feeling of awe at seeing the thousands of tiny stalactites in the huge gaping caverns with their reflective pools so far under the earth! The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and happy to answer lots of questions. We appreciated the thought put into displaying the cave in different light settings... More

Very pretty cave. Well worth the 642 steps. Gorgeous reflections from the water. Interesting suspended table. Look out for the cave dragon.

The lake cave is beautiful especially with the underground lake and the spectacular formations, the suspended table is absolutely spectacular and unique.

We chose this cave to visit out of all caves that were on offer and were not disappointed with the nature surrounding the entrance, the cave itself and the information display. My kids really enjoyed the cave crawl sample that is in their info area.
