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.)

Just stunning! I have never been anywhere like this. It was beautiful. U have to go. Not for anyone who has disabilities as there is 350 steps throughout the cave. And some areas are quite tight but it's so worth the visit.More

Though the cave is not so big, you can expect quite abit of climbing! This is one of the 3 caves around the area and you can probably finish within a short duration. However, there is timing for the cave entry.
