Lake Cave & Cave Works, WA, Australia
Lake Cave Eco interpretative centre is designed to help you learn about the formation and history of caves within the region, throughout Australia and around the world. Featuring various educational displays and an interactive model of a cave, the centre offers universal access so all visitors can experience the life-like cave model and observe replicas of the delicate formations found in the caves on the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge. Children will love the “cave crawl” – a simulated tunnel that enables them to safely experience tight spaces found in wild caves. The centre is also home to an operational laboratory which is used for speleological (cave) research.
The main ticket office for Lake , Mammoth and Jewel Caves , CaveWorks also has excellent displays about caves, cave conservation and local fossil discoveries. There’s also an authentic model cave and a ‘cave crawl’ experience. Behind the centre is Lake Cave, the prettiest of them all, where limestone formations are reflected in an underground stream. The vegetated entrance to this cave is spectacular and includes a karri tree with a girth of 7m. CaveWorks is 20km south of Margaret River, off Caves Rd. Single cave tickets include entry to CaveWorks.
