Lake Cave, Margaret River

4.6
#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.

  • This is one of the several caves located in this part of the country. A friendly and knowledgeable guide accompanies the visitors giving a comprehensive description about the place and questions are always welcome. A visit to the small souvenir shop with many collectibles and other stuff helps you to buy mementos to treasure.
  • Really amazing entrance to the cave, the staurcase 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.
  • Absolutely loved seeing the Dragon Head and The Suspended Table. The lightings were lovely. Not so elderly friendly though as its a round trip of 600 steps, which even I felt was a little tedious. Cave is also relatively small but a lovely sight to behold.n
  • Very beautiful cave even though it is a small one! The tour is very informative and the light shows inside are beautiful Do spend at least 2 hours for the tour + gallery & views
  • amazing view, friendly staff. better make booking by phone otherwise tour might be full when you get there.

Where to stay in Margaret River

Though many choose to explore the Margaret River wine region from a base at one of the area's campgrounds, you can also set up your home-away-from-home at one of the city's comfortable inns. Look for cozy establishments located near good surfing and swimming beaches. For a more luxurious experience, consider staying at a resort hotel or beach cottage, many of which offer well-equipped cooking areas and wooden decks ideal for holding small parties and family get-togethers.
