Descend 350 steps beneath the ground to discover the exquisitely beautiful Lake Cave so named because of its permanent lake within. Be guided through the silent idyllically lit cave as you learn about its past, present and future. CaveWorks Eco Centre and Lake Cave Tearooms onsite. 20 minutes south of Margaret River Town.
Lake Cave is the deepest of the open caves, small and magical, it is like a winter wonderland overflowing with beautiful stalagmites, stalactites, straws and columns beautifully highlighted with a light show. It's amazing to think that these delicate natural sculptures have been created over millions of years by water droplets. Just being in this cave seems to bring with it a new perspective.
The trek into the cave is difficult but the guide does give you plenty
of time and the walk back up is completely at your own pace. The Guide is informative and exciting.
In the same location you can spend time at CaveWorks, the Eco Visitor Centre where you learn all about caves; their history, hydrology, geology, and ecology.The exhibition shows the importance of the conservation of caves and shares local fossil findings. Free entry with your cave tour or you can simply visit CaveWorks for a small fee.
