Although Lake Cave is a relatively small cave, it’s diverse and the features are beautiful, including the sink hole going down into the cave. Richard, our guide was informative and enthusiastic. Thanks.

This is the cave I picked to visit on my recent trip to Margaret River, 64M underground our tour guide was lovely and informative. The shelf that's been created by Stalactites & stalagmites is very cool and seems like an optical illusion.

Yes. There are lots of stairs to get down to the cave and then you climb them back up. There’s only one part of the stairs you go backwards so you don’t bang your head.
