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.


Leeuwin Estate

August 4, 2014

Leeuwin Estate, one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district, consistently produces wines that rank with the world’s finest.

In 1972, following an extensive search for the area most suitable to produce the best varietal wines in Australia, legendary American winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard.

Originally a cattle farm, Leeuwin Estate evolved, under the direction of Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Robert Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor.

A nursery was planted in 1974 and the initial vineyards were deep-ploughed, deep-ripped, emptied of stone, planned, pegged, measured, marked and eventually planted by hand over a five year period from 1975.

Featuring state-of-the art facilities, the winery building was opened in 1978, celebrating with a trial vintage. Leeuwin enjoyed its first commercial vintage in 1979, and was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1980 “Art Series” Chardonnay in an international blind tasting.

Maintaining a team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers, and now under the direction of two generations of the founding family, Leeuwin now exports to over 30 countries.
