Lake Cave is a stunning crystal chamber, deep beneath the earth. Entry to this cave is from the floor of a sunken forest, surrounded by towering karri trees.

Inside the cave, a tranquil lake mirrors the delicate crystal formations that grow from the cave roof, while the massive 'Suspended Table' hangs from the ceiling, almost touching the waters of the lake.

This cave is the most 'actively dripping' cave in the southwest, and it's the only cave on the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge that has a permanent lake. Lake Cave is also the deepest of the show caves on the ridge, and is without doubt one of the most beautiful limestone caves in Western Australia. The incredible entry through the sink-hole in the karri forest, and the unique 'Suspended Table' decoration make this cave a 'must see' attraction.

Above ground, admire the views from the Lake Cave Deck; a spectacular viewing platform in the treetops, suspended over the sunken entry to the cave. Don’t forget to brush up on your cave knowledge at the interpretive centre, with information about the Leeuwin-Naturaliste caves, as well as fascinating insights into caves all over the world.

Lake Cave is probably my favourite cave, out of the rest of the caves along the region! Been there about three times but always a good experience. It’s the smallest, deepest and most beautiful. A magical experience to sit at the end of the cave, watch a light show and experience complete darkness. If one were to choose a cave to visit out of the whole trip, LAKE CAVE IT IS. P.S. There are over 300 steps down and up. But coming up will be at your own pace, so no hurry! Xiao Jun Chew
Beautiful cave. A bit expensive for such a short tour though. Would be happier to pay that price if it were possible to explore and take photos at your own pace. Hard to take in the cave and take good photos when trying not to hold back a group tour. Elizabeth Qian
I really liked our guide Peps. She gave us a lot of information. It was clear and very interesting. I was very impressed with the cave. I was expecting a little a tour longer for this price but it was very interesting and I do recommend it! Staff was very nice! Aurelie Jammes
Absolutely stunning! Entering the cave was interesting and immersive with a wide opening into the 60m cavern. Once inside there are various different formations that were beautiful, the enthusiastic and friendly guides provided awesome information about them - thank you to Georgia for the tour! The spectacle of the cave was the ‘shower straws’ and ‘floating table’ of which is the only one in the world. The visitors centre provided useful information about the history of the cave as well as information about cave creatures, rock formations and included a gift shop and cafe. Overall, DEFINITELY worth a visit if you’re spending time in Margaret river! Note: There are many stairs to access the cave on the tour, I noticed some people getting out of breath at some point. However it will be fine for most people with a decent fitness level. Riley Haydon
Great experience! Our tour guide lady was wonderful, very informative and funny! She has a great appreciation for the cave and loves her job. $22 pp for adults- they are a non profit organisation so it goes to a good cause by keeping the caves maintained. Sal Gadd
