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.

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.

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).

Great caves and informative guide. Considering it had only reopened a few weeks before due to last summer fires it was amazing how much work had been done to restore access

Great experience. Tour guide was lovely & very informative. Light effects in the cave were very special. Stairs back up a little challenging.
