Lake Cave, Margaret River

4.6
#1 of 9 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.

    We had visited the Mammoth Cave earlier in the day and had been recommended this cave due to the reflective pool at the bottom. My aunt stayed above ground and I took the plunge down the 325 steep sta...  more »

    The tour guide was excellent. She was so enthusiastic about the cave and had so much knowledge to share about the caves history and it's different formations. The actual cave beautiful. I'd never seen...  more »

    This is the best cave I have ever seen discovered by TIM CONNOLLY. No two caves are the same. You might have heard this saying. Which is quite true. This cave is smaller in size but the beauty of that...  more »

  • Cave is beautiful and people really friendly and our tour guy (Josh) was really good showing us the cave made sure everyone safety (as don't bang head on rocks) became first :) So much beauty ❤️❤️❤️ Recommended to go have a look 👀
  • I went to 3 of the 4 main caves in the area and all were worth visiting. The formations are amazing but each cave is quite different
  • After having a chat to some locals they recommended this cave as being the best one to see if you were to see just one of them. I enjoyed the tour but the price is completely crazy, could be half of what they are asking. As a couple it's very expensive, I have no idea how families can afford this. Also don't worry about the stairs they really aren't that bad unless you have very bad knees.
  • Really beautiful (even romantic) sitting on the bench viewing the wonderful formations and the suspended "upside down table" which is extremely rare. It is about 60m down to the bottom, a bit of a climb back to the top, but well worth the effort. It's worth buying a multiple entry ticket if planning to view more than one cave - a 3 cave ticket for 1 adult & 1 child costs $80.
  • We ummm'd and arrrrr'd about paying the $22.50 per adult entry fee for the cave tour, but we're so glad we did. It's a spectacular natural attraction, augmented with tasteful LED lighting to enhance the experience and provide a safe walkin path. The guide was very informative but her condescending, "Playschool" banter grew tiresome very quickly.

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.
