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.)

This was a new experience for me and I am so glad we visited this cave. There were lots of steps and it was quite warm inside but the cave was worth the slight discomfort. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Very nice stalactites and stalagmites, this place has an incredible spot where you can sit on the floor and after 30s with the eyes closed, when you watch the ceiling you feel as if you were flying above a huge forest... Very nice experience !

Enjoyed the cave visit, lots of stairs, regretted not bringing a torch. The guide at the end was a wealth of cave knowledge and so enthusiastic, she engaged the kids so well.

Well worth a visit as very interesting. Careful if not too steady on feet as there are alot of steps. Don't bother stopping to hear the presentation about the rock formations - it can be quite boring.More

Took my younger kids (9 and 6). Found the tour guides very enlightening and also friendly. Well priced and no time limit on cave visit. The cave walk is slightly strenuous but my kids and I completed quite easily. Great way to see something different

Did semi guided tour. Very informative. You can take as long as you like to explore. Quite a few steps but very spectacular. Would highly recommend.

It was great for the an hour semi guided tour with 350 steps leading into the caves and always remember to watch your head as the caves tend to get a lil tight and low to go thru but seriously worth the exploration of it....More
