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.

Loved it. Heaps of stairs. No good for people with mobility issues. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Photos don't do it justice. Bit over paying 20 something bucks or more every time I stop to see something but this was worth it.

This was the last of my caves visit and probably my favourite. The amazing nature around as you go down the 325 stairs is breathtaking! If that was all I saw, I’d still be happy. But then we went to the cave and saw just...More

I've enjoyed now quite a few of the Margaret River caves. Lake cave was delightful. The decent into the huge hole is spectacular in itself before you get into the underground wonderland. Within the cave the reflections of the formations and the suspended table were...More

This was awesome. I have claustrophobia but managed to get through ok. There are 325 steps going down so be prepared to climb the same 325 steps back up! Richard our guide was fun and entertaining and clearly knows his stuff about caves. It’s a...More

Hi Janine D, Thanks for your review. We're glad you had such a great time, even with your claustrophobia. We quite often find that both Lake Cave and Mammoth Cave are well-suited to people with mild claustrophobia, as they both have only short sections with...More

Be warned there are a lot of steps - over 300 and most of them very steep. Not so bad going down but coming up single file...... However every step was worth what was below ground. It is breath talking and I would highly recommend...More

A gorgeous cave. Spectacular entrance and great scenic drive getting there. Great for all ages however there are over 600 stairs! Book tickets in advance especially during school holidays so you dont have to wait around.

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!

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.
