Lake Cave is renowned for the Suspended Table--a 4,535 kg (10,000 lb) column of calcite that hangs from the ceiling just a tiny bit above the lake. Inside the cave, you will find a tranquil lake that reflects the image of delicate formations, creating the effect of infinity mirror. Descend the 300 steps from the cavern entrance at your own pace and gaze up at towering karri trees and crystal formations.

  • To get into the cave and take the guided tour you need to negotiate 320 steps - each way! But it was all worth it. The cave is beautiful and the 'folding table' is stunning. Our guide was also very kn...  read more »
  • 300 steps down, there's your legs shake. But 300 steps that bangs your heart top, of, if not properly-trained 60er. But still it was the trouble.

  • Small but nice cave. We really enjoyed. This cave is different than others. There are around 300 stairs to go down to the cave but then cave is very much flat. There is a beautiful lake inside the cave. Enjoyed the environment.
  • Such a beautiful cave. One of the best in Margies. And nice stairs to get down there. Small groups with amazing guides.
  • Loved the fact that the entrance where you walked down into the cave is a part of the cave that has collapsed along time ago. The small lake inside the cave was also spectacular. Enjoy!
  • Heaps of stairs to get there or you can walk through from the mammoth cave ... mapped route with tours available.. extremely beautiful formations and heaps of pre historic fossils can be viewed easily.
  • The cave itself is not so impressive. It is relatively small with a few very nice decorations. It is quite active and has a lake inside. It has impressive surroundings which can be physically demanding especially for going up.
