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.

This cave is spectacular. The main attraction is the suspended table and it is quite amazing, however there are many other beautiful things to look at including the straw crystals, and the reflections in the lake are lovely. You must be reasonably able-bodied to tackle...More

Thank you to the rangers and staff who were so friendly and patient answering all of our kid's neverending questions about cave crustaceans :) Spectacular cave experience.

This isn't the biggest cave in the region, but the most picturesque, and the view before you climb down is stunning. There are about 300 reasonably steep steps down (no problem), and up again (a bit harder), so you need to be fairly fit. The...More

Excellent tourist attraction in Margaret River. Our guide was excellent. Light show and view from above the sink hole was personal highlight.

You can choose a package of two, three or fours caves to visit. Very difficult choice before seeing them! We took 2 days before deciding which ones would be the most interesting! We finally visited Mammoth, Lake and Jewel in this order with increasing pleasure...More

Lake is absolutey stunning, with a permanent lake within the cave. You will need to descend 350 steps beneath the ground to reach the cave, which might be a bad idea for the elderly or those with weak knees. All the other caves are pretty...More

I could never go into those tunnels but I am fine with these caves. I too am claustrophobic.
