Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Western Australia / Margaret River Region / Yallingup / Ngilgi Cave
At Ngilgi Cave, walk along the well-lit, steep and narrow boardwalks into the hot and humid chamber of this 500,000-year-old cave. The cave has a rich history related to the Aboriginal people who had lived there. As you descend 45 m (147 ft) below Earth's surface, be sure to stop and study the stalactites, stalagmites, and crystal formations on the way to the cave. Formations include Two Tonne Stalactite, the white Mother of Pearl Shawl, and the beautiful Arab's Tent Shawl. Observe the theater chamber with its superb acoustics: No wonder it has hosted numerous musical performances. More adventurous caving options and tours are available for cave aficionados. Plan my Yallingup trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

3 adults and 2 kids we had a great time! The tour director was very good, and informative! There are about 200 stairs down and then back up so great little climb my4yr old was fine, my 2.5yr old did really well climbing most of them by himself. It's well lit and you can take photos.
We loved it. Be prepared for stairs, lots and lots of stairs but you can go at your own pace. The guides take you in and give you a good run down of the history of the cave. It's well maintained with boardwalks and safety rails. My kids loved it too. Definitely worth a look.
