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.

Absolutely loved this tour/experience. It is so beautiful and worth the trip down the stairs and back up. I admit that I was happy my 3yr old was happy walking back up.

It's leg day if you're visiting caves!! Some fantastic photo opportunities during the guided tour by knowledgeable guides. If you're in the area this is well worth the trip, great value for money. (If you're going to more than 1 of the "big 4" caves, you get discounted entry).

My partner and I were blown away! We didn't know what to expect but it was a magical and sacred place. What a privilege to be able to see such a phenomenon.
