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.

It is one of the shorter cave tours, but it is absolutely splendid and unique from all the others - if you do one cave tour you would not be disappointed if this was the one.

Was such a beautiful setting!! A bit smaller than the other caves in the Leeuwin Naturalist range but it had its own unique features. (A 'Suspended table' rock formation. Only 2 in the world. Other one is in France not open to the public!) And...More

Dear SM T, Thanks for sharing your experiences at Lake Cave. It sounds like you had an excellent time. You’re right about the complete darkness – it’s almost as mesmerising as the stunning crystal. And the complete silence that often accompanies the darkness is captivating....More

There are perhaps about half a dozen well-known ‘show caves’ in the Margaret River region, each having its own special look, feel and accessibility into the cave itself. Lake Cave is reportedly one of the deepest in the region – about 62m below the surface...More

Nature gives us a very wonderful gift. Guided tour tells you a lot more of the cave. 300 steps down then up. Good exercise.

Stairs gave us a work out but it was worth it. Terrific Guide - she answered numerous questions and was very knowledgeable.

Is the space very confined? I'm referring to as confined as Cu Chi tunnel in Vietnam. A little claustrophobic here.

Its not confined at all ! Its only the staircase area which leads us to the cave is a little tight ~ which i think u might be able to overcome quickly as its not a long way down ~ =)

Sneakers would be ideal. I wore comfortable shoes but wish I'd worn sneakers. Some bits of the floor can be wet and the stairs too.

The Lake is the smallest of the caves so once inside you will do very little walking (less than 100 m) and no manoeuvring and ducking to get to the end of the cave. The Jewel is the opposite. It's huge and heaps of walking... More
