Overview

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.)

I love caves and this is a nice cave to go to. Exploring part is great as after the guide left you can go explore, about 50 mins, careful with the head as some part are low.

Absolute must if you visit this area. Historical site. Interesting but be prepared to go down a few flights of stairs, up and down twisting and turning uneven pathways and if you are tall to do a lot of ducking! But worth it.

This cave is breath taking and definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. There are many stairs which make it a challenge but well worth it! Allow around at hour to comfortably see the whole cave and fit in the guided tour.
