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.

Probably one of the most interesting caves in the Margaret River region. Although it’s a bit short under ground. At least its very informative. Of course as every cave in the region has, it must have a very long stairs down and you have to walk back up to the same way and there’s a total of 225 stairs so just be prepared. Took a bunch of photos about the cave as well as the lobby and it’s very interesting lobby I must say. It even has a mini design of the cave in doors. If you want a quick and interesting cave to visit, this is a must cave to go to.

Definitely put Lake Cave at the top of your list, when it comes to caves, this one is certainly special. There's over 300 steps down into the caverns but you can take your time coming back to the surface, plus there's a comfy lounge waiting for you & a huge selection of gifts for you to browse through afterwards. Chat to the wonderful staff about discounts to see other unique caves in the area also 😎

Nice cave, cost was about $65 for 2 adults and 2 children. It is guided which I love as you can ask questions etc. Our guide was lovely. The outside of the cave has had some damage due to the december 2021 fire and there’s some renovations happening to the outside but inside is still so beautiful. We have done the Nigili cave before and I think I prefer that one to this as this one was over in the hour and just not much to look at.

Beautiful cave with floating columns suspended over water. Lots of steps but our son who has Down Syndrome managed them easily. Great to see the rainforest rejuvenating so quickly after the fires! Well worth the drive from Yallingup! One of our trip highlights!
