Lake Cave is, to put it simply, a mirrored wonderland. Home to the "suspended table" a spectacular crystal decoration weighing several tonnes that hangs from the ceiling, almost touching the waters of the lake. It is thought that this may be the only decoration of its kind in the world. Lake Cave is the most 'actively dripping' cave in the south west, and it's the only cave on the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge that has a permanent lake.

The cave is one of the deepest on the ridge, with entry access through a spectacular doline - a large hole in the earth's surface. There is an interpretative centre onsite, designed to help you learn about the formation and history of caves within the region, throughout Australia and around the world.

Lake Cave is a stunning pristine chamber deep beneath the earth. Inside the cave a tranquil lake reflects delicate formations that will take your breath away. Visitors descend a staircase in time, gazing up at towering karri trees from the floor of the sunken forest, before entering one of the most beautiful limestone caves in Western Australia.
