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.)

We did the cave tour on Saturday 14th Jan, and would just like to say how impressed we were with our guide (lady with hair plats). She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and certainly kept things interesting. She has a genuine passion and was a great ambassador for your business. We would recommend the cave tour to friends and family... More

We decided to take an adventure tour (Crystal Crawl) and are glad we spent the extra money. It was a small group tour ( three plus the guide), we clambered over rocks and commando crawled into spaces that not too many people experience. Prior to booking the staff advised us what was required and what to expect. They were very... More

Initially I thought paying $20 odd to look in some caves was a bit crazy but it's actually pretty good and the stories behind them pretty interesting also. Next time we'll do the Margaret river ones.

Well worth the visit..at 195cm tall it had its interesting moments !! Some of the passageways were quite tight, but worth the effort !!

Close to Yallingup and busy in school holidays. It's the kind of place you want peace and quiet to enjoy the underground world, but it was extremely noisy. Suggest a trip on a school day for a more relaxing view of spectacular caves.

Hi Nicola W, School holidays can be busy everywhere down south. We hope that our Semi Guided Tours offer the flexibility to do explore the cave at your own pace and find the peace and quiet. We look forward to your return visit. Safe travels, Ngilgi Staff More

On a hot day what better than to take a trip underground to the caves. They have the most amazing natural structures some in excess of 350,000 years old. Great staff with excellent knowledge make this a super place to visit

We have visited 4 caves during our recent visit to Margaret River and each of the caves has it's uniqueness. The most impressive experience at Ngilgi Cave was when we were lying on floor in the amphitheatre and looked up the cave celling: wow, feeling like in an UFO or a spaceship in Star War ...

Don't miss a visit to this cave with its different forms of stalagmites & stalactites! The visit lasts an hour & the tour guide tells you interesting tales from how the cave was discovered & was only accessed by a rope ladder then!
