The native forest surrounding the cave is regenerating beautifully and a superb new jarrah staircase descends through the enormous doline (sinkhole) towards the entrance of the cave. Lake Cave is the most 'actively dripping' cave in the southwest and its pristine chamber is a visually spectacular crystal wonderland.

Lake Cave is a stunning crystal wonderland, situated deep beneath the earth. The entrance of the cave lies at the base of a spectacular sinkhole. Inside the cave, dazzling crystal formations dominate the cave roof, while the unique 'Suspended Table' is perfectly reflected in the tranquil water below.
This cave is the most 'actively dripping' and deepest of the show caves in the southwest. It is without doubt one of the most beautiful limestone caves in Western Australia. Entry to the cave is through an enormous sinkhole and the unique 'Suspended Table' decoration make this cave a 'must see' attraction.

The native forest surrounding the cave is currently regenerating and reinventing itself following recent fires. Flourishing new growth lines the forest floor and green foliage climbs the trunks of the towering trees. For your safety and the protection of the recovering forest, please keep to the designated walking trails at all times.

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.

Visiting ancient caves is one of the most recommended activities in Margaret River tour, and it is definitely worthwhile. The cave was more magnificent than I expected. It is not super big cave but there are many unique spots which you cannot see outside here. You can feel the transition of era during the cave tour.

Absolutely stunning. We had planned on seeing one of the many caves but only decided on Lakes Cave a few hours before our tour. Made the right decision. Our tour guide was fantastic - very informative and he has a real passion for the caves. I wish I could remember his name to give him full credit. We took the last tour for the day and he had such patience. 325 stairs doesn't seem like much until you realize it's actually 650 stairs and the second half are uphill LOL. We had a small tour group which made for an intimate experience. The water level in the cave is at it's peak and is a must see. The lighting and sensory displays that accompany the guided tour are like the icing on the cake. I highly recommend this to be the first cave on your list of caves to see. It won't disappoint.

This was an exhilarating experience. The cave was a sunken hole under the forest with a lake inside. It was a relatively young limestone cave. The guide was very knowledgeable and patient. It was long way down via narrow staircase. Climbing down was easier than Climbing up. Very well preserved and clean. I love the part when the guide turned off the spotlights and it was pitch black. He turned on one spotlight at a time. The limestone pillars, stalagmites and stalactites were breathtaking. The lake just added to the serenity of this spot. Highly recommended.

It's a pretty cave with a great spectacle. The views are great, it's a fun little journey, however the cave itself is comparatively small and the coerall trip is about an hour total running time. Given the pictures, it's deceptively grand despite being a smaller cave.
