About Lake Cave, Margaret River

This natural wonder beats out Margaret River’s many famed wineries for the top spot in the city’s tourist attractions. Inside the cave is a tranquil lake. Above the lake’s waters is what’s popularly known as a ‘suspended table’ - a brilliant collection of crystals that reach down from the ceiling to the surface of the water. The part that takes your breath away is the reflection of the crystals on the water. The cave is lit up so that the tranquil surface can barely be told apart from the natural formations above it. It’s the only cave on this entire ridge that has a permanent lake. At the cave, you’ll also find an interactive exhibit that explains the geology and history of the cave and other caves in the region.

You can only visit the cave via guided tours that take place once every hour beginning in the morning.

Lake Cave, Margaret River Reviews

  • 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.

  • Great cave and an awesome infrastructure, even if you have kids with you. Beautiful story all about the history of the place as well. Be prepared for a lot of steps.

  • 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.
