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.)

Our first stop in Yallingup was Ngilgi Cave. Guided tour inside then free to walk around, We stayed nearly 2 hours. Certainly worth a visit with very knowledgeable guides with gift shop for souvenirs.

Ngilgi (pronounced NIL-GEE) is a stunning set of caves, much larger than I thought and visually stunning. There are a fair few stairs and low lying rocks etc but well worth it

Our guide really made this tour. Her knowledge, her ability to relate to everyone. The explanations were thorough. The use to the torch to see through the stalactites gave a beautiful effect.
