Lake Cave, Margaret River

4.7
#1 of 14 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.

  • It is recommended that certain talents go to climb up and climb down to a total of more than 600 ladders. Is indeed a spectacle, along the way also admire the adventures of many years ago, to dig this interesting point. About $ $, the package teaches, and he relationships all the lighting systems, and it's fun to enjoy the whole black feeling in the hole.

  • This is one of the better caves in Western Australia as it is relatively big and one of the few caves that has a lake in it, hence the name. Our guide Richard was really funny as he made sure we were ...  more »
  • It was amazing to see the big whole in the ground looking down from the balcony. But it was even better to descent and take all those steps into the ground. For me it was the first cave visit but afte...  more »

  • Really great tour. Our guide “Richard” was funny, entertaining and shared some great info about the caves history. Highly recommend. Note that there are 325 stairs down into the cave (amongst various platforms) which also means 325 stairs back up again. All the cave tours have been awesome. Jewel cave was cool too.
  • Compulsory guided tour (unlike free & easy exploration in some Japan caves). More worth to buy packages than to visit just one cave (need not explore all the caves in one day if u bought the package, 1cave =$22.50, 2 caves = $30) Very deep but "short cave". U will get a feel of being in total darkness for a bit as the guide is able to control the light switches to adjust the lighting. The cave isn't cold, just nice cosy temperature.
  • 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.
  • Lake cave was awesome. A smaller cave compared to the others around the area but in my opinion it's the best. Make it your first cave to visit as the entrance is a little intense if it's your first time caving. Our tour guide was grest. Great for families.
  • Spectacular. Magical. Interesting. Our guide was really great. The steps back up are not for the faint hearted. Unfortunately, we thought the coffee shop was a real let down - smelled of fried food and nothing much else to offer; we didn't stay for refreshments.
