Lake Cave, Margaret River

4.7
#1 of 15 in Parks in Margaret River
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.

  • Fantastic cave to visit although it is quite a climb down to the cave - about 340 steps. Not too bad going down but coming back up is a killer. Cave guide was really good and knew his stuff. Well wort...  more »

  • Awesome experience! The caves were really cool and interesting to explore.The tour guides were very knowledgeable and funny. Makes a great destination to visit. There are a lot of stairs that you will have to climb to get down to the caves so be careful of that if you have any injuries or physical problems. There are washrooms on site and parking is good. Highly recommend this attraction if you can visit it. Also don't touch the rocks and stalagmites so you don't destroy anything.
  • What can you say about looking at nature! Such an ideal place to check out caves awesome appearance. It has taken time to get to what we are looking at. Ample parking and easy access form car park. Great showroom showing an idea of what the caves are all about. Friendly customer service from staff at the caves reception. Definitely worth the experience.
  • Really amazing entrance to the cave, the staircase bit feels cramped but hey its a cave what do you expect. The cave itself is picturesque, with the floating pillars being the best part, very small cave though and the "tour" was basically one of the staff talking about the same few basic facts regarding caves and when this one was discovered and trying to make us go slowly through it. Ended with a pretty good light show of it.
  • A great experience. Honestly didn't think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did. The guide (Richard) was fantastic and the cave was almost surreal. Very well set up and executed.
  • Best cave. Nicely illuminated, spectacular effects on the water. We had a fantastic guide and spend about an hour down in the cave.
