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.)

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.

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

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

A fantastic cave experience and predominantly self guided. We did lake, mammoth, jewel and ngilgi and it was well worth it. They are all so different and offer different experiences. Ngilgi was very different to all the others and if you are only doing one...More

The cave trip was awesome. Took my wife and sons aged 10 and 13. On the Explorer tour there was a bit of crawling, climbing, and squeezeways involved but they loved it. Our tour guide Mel was great as well.
