Explore the ancient wonders of Ngilgi Cave! The Cave is warm in winter and cool in summer.

Ngilgi Cave is located just off Caves Road, a short distance north of Yallingup, beneath the limestone ridge which forms Cape Naturaliste.

The fascinating association with a rich Aboriginal legend describing the battle between a good spirit (Ngilgi) and an evil spirit (Wolgine) gives Ngilgi Cave its name.

Explore the cave and experience stunning stalactite, stalagmite, helictite and shawl formations. Visit an interpretive area detailing Ngilgi Cave's interesting history. A cafe, playground, barbecue facilities and walk trails make Ngilgi Cave a fun place to visit for the entire family.

OPENING HOURS

9.00Am to 5.00Pm (First tour at 9.30Am

Last entry to Ngilgi Cave at 4.00Pm.)

The walk through the cave has a few tricky spots but the walkways make it reasonably easy to navigate. The lighting has enhanced the natural structures except for the coloured lighting that looks false. A good place to visit

We did a tour of the cave with our 2 year old son and he loved it. So interesting, it's amazing to see what is underground. Staff were all lovely and very knowledgable.

Ngilgi Cave is wonderful to explore. The stalactites and stalagmites are unique and left in natural order predominantly. I also liked that we could explore at our own pace without a guide. There is a very knowledgeable ranger with an enthusiasm for geology in the cave though to help with any questions. Make sure you go to the amphitheater to... More

We had a great time on the explorer adventure tour with Shayne - she was very knowledgeable and passionate. I'd highly recommend one of the adventure tours as you get to go off the boardwalk and explore the deeper caves 'off the path' and learn a lot about the different crystals and rock formations.

Our whole family where in awe. Great guides, easy parking and the walk was not too strenuous. The price may seem a little steep bit well worth it for the insight of the guide

My friends and I (including a 15 month bubba) traversed Ngilgi cave on a partially guided tour. On the surface our guide paid respect to the natural custodians of the land and informed us of some interesting facts. Inside the cave we were free to explore the amazing natural architecture of the under ground system at our own pace. The... More

This cave is amazing!! Travellers with bad knees just be aware it has A LOT OF STEPS!!! I think about 600 and some very steep. However there are good rails and paths and to be honest it is worth it. Deep winding tunnels, spectacular crystal formations, well lite features and experts on hand deep down to show you crystals and... More

Near the entrance is a constructed slide and tunnel. Its not long but our kid loved it, and it brings you out through a narrow opening in the cave. Otherwise we did well. Its semi-guided which means 5 minutes of talk at the start and 5 minutes of talk in the middle but otherwise you are loose! The cave has... More
