Owner description: Lake Cave is a stunning crystal wonderland and the only cave in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge with a permanent lake. It acts as a mirror of infinite reflections that is truly magical. The cave is renowned for the ‘Suspended Table’ – a five tonne column of calcite that hangs from the ceiling just a few centimetres above the lake. The precinct features impressive retail, interpretative and cafe facilities. Located 25 kilometres south of Margaret River.

Absolutely breathtaking cave with amazing formations. My family got there when it was raining. Unfortunately, the rain jackets were sold out and we had to settle for ponchos. Decent protection from the rain though. With that, we began our long descent down the huge crevice to meet our guide, Georgie. I have to compliment Georgie, she was so forthcoming and was most willing to share her vast knowledge of the cave and the formations within. The tour after the descent was pretty easy, well-lit and mostly flat ground that is easily walkable if you have young children or seniors with you. The key highlight for us was the "suspended table" above the lake, made from the accumulation of calcite and it's subsequent erosion by water. The tour took us around an hour to complete and our children thoroughly enjoyed the cave. We will not hesitate to recommend this to anyone coming to this part of Australia.

P.S. The food at the lake cafe is decent, good as a pre or post tour snack.

It is well lit. Therefore my 2 girls of age 7 & 9 were not scare while they were inside. Hubby and myself together with 67 yo mother in law was able see the formation in the cave without any problem.

Spectacularly beautiful, incredible formations, friendly tour guide (Georgie is a champ!), a lot of steps and head minding but overall an unreal experience. We got the Grand Cave Pass (Mammoth, Lake & Jewel) and it each one was amazing in it's own unique way.

My boyfriend and I toured the cave with Rikki and thought she was great and very knowledgable, she was laid-back but very professional at the same time and made us feel at ease. Definitely recommend this place to other tourists and even locals, as long as you don't have bad knees because there is a heap of stairs and almost needed my boyfriend to push me up by the end of it!
