Lake Cave, Boranup

4.7
#1 of 45 in Parks in Margaret River Region
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.

  • Nice cave. Not terrifically big but still interesting. There are quite a few cave formations but most impressive is the lake. It is quite a long walk down to reach the cave entrance, few hundred steps. Those same steps have to be retraced on the way back up. The cave is a flat walk for about 300 meters. Very friendly guides. You do experience total darkness while in the deepest part of the cave. Nice thing to do on a hot day.
  • I absolutely loved it. Nice tour guide and cool caves with some awesome rock formations. Heavy on the steps but guides are happy for everyone to take it at their own pace. Cool viewing platform at the top too.
