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 Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • The Ngilgi caves were the first tourist attraction in WA, and it is amazing. You need to wear flat shoes, and be prepared to do a lot of steps, and it is quite humid down in the depths of the cave...

  • Haven't been in 35 years. Completely forgotten how good this place was. Staff very knowledgeable. Great for the kids. Not overly big but a good experience. Big shout out to Paul for your great guidance.
  • Nice well-run place. Tour guide was great for the semi-guided tour. Sure there's quite a few steps, but we took it easy, paused often to read the info boards, and didn't really get puffed out.
