We supply all the gear they will need a rain coat. We are not a big company and work hard with our crews to make sure they can make a decent wage.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Point of Difference

Lake Cave is, to put it simply, a mirrored wonderland. Home to the “suspended table” which weighs several tonnes and is one of the only formations of its kind in the world, Lake is the most active cave in the south west. It is the only cave on the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge that has a permanent lake. Entry access is through a spectacular doline – a large hole in the earth’s surface. It is the deepest of the three show caves run by the Augusta Margaret River Tourism Association. It is home to Caveworks, a world-class eco interpretative centre designed to help you learn about the formation and history of caves within the region, throughout Australia and around the world.
