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.)

Located close to Yalingup in the great S/W of WA, this fascinating piece of geology, found only a bit over 100 years ago, is a must see site to visit when staying in the area. Our friendly and knowledgeable guide (Shantal) led us down the 350 steps, winding through, up and over the stalactites and mites which cover the floors... More

A must while down south of Perth is the Ngilgi cave. Just to see the crystal formation in the cave that have been there for years and years are something special. The guides are also very knowledgeable. You can also get some amazing picture for the formation while in the cave.

Very interesting self tour. Guides in the park are good and informative. Welcoming staff. We bought a pass and saw the cave and then the light house at Cape Naturaliste. The cave is interesting and an amazing natural attraction. Lots of stairs for a good workout.

Visited the cave on our way to Margaret River and spent a happy hour touring this extensive cavern. After our guide had given an initial introduction to the cave and the possible routes to take, we were left to walk around at leisure. The cave is dry, which is just as well given that some of the steps and roof... More

A must see if you're in the area. Many stairs & mind your head due to low hanging rocks, but still worth the effort. Quite a workout & you will get short of breath & sweaty due to high carbon dioxide levels.

Stopped by the cave even though my partner had reservations due to getting claustrophobic and we both are really glad we did. Really easy cave to get around and some fantastic sights to see inside. Highly recommend!

I have done all the caves in the Southwest region that are open to the public and all offer something different. The Ngilgi cave is more at your own pace, taking as long or as little as you like. We did it in about 50 mins slightly rushed as we were on limited time. Some say a bit touristy, but... More
