Lake Cave

Caves

Overview

Lake Cave is, to put it simply, a mirrored wonderland. Home to the "suspended table" a spectacular crystal decoration weighing several tonnes that hangs from the ceiling, almost touching the waters of the lake. It is thought that this may be the only decoration of its kind in the world. Lake Cave is the most 'actively dripping' cave in the south west, and it's the only cave on the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge that has a permanent lake.

The cave is one of the deepest on the ridge, with entry access through a spectacular doline - a large hole in the earth's surface. There is an interpretative centre onsite, designed to help you learn about the formation and history of caves within the region, throughout Australia and around the world.

More information

Lake Cave is a stunning pristine chamber deep beneath the earth. Inside the cave a tranquil lake reflects delicate formations that will take your breath away.

It's a beautiful cave, I enjoyed my time there but requires some level of fitness to get back up the stairs - there are 325 steps each way. If you're lucky you might spot some of the creatures that live in the water such as yabbies (sort of a tiny kind of crayfish) but they're very shy.

Amazing and beautiful cave! Definitely worth a visit! The guides are very friendly, helpful and courteous with a lot of knowledge. You have to go many steps down and later back to get to the cave. At the entrance area is also a little shop where you can get some souvenirs and something like a museum or exhibition. The car park offers enough space to leave your car there.

Great cave. Lots of stairs if that's an issue for you, requires a decent level of fitness, but plenty of places to rest on the way back up.

If you gotta choose only one cave to visit this is the one ! It's a very deep cave and you can see all the formations that let to it. The water in the bottom gives a mystical and peaceful atmosphere to the place
