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.

“An Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

After trying out some of the more beginner-level caves (Mammoth and Jewel) me and my partner caught the caving bug and had to try out something a little more challenging. We chose to try the Crystal Crawl at Ngilgi Cave and were blown away by the adrenaline rush of tight squeezes and crawlspaces as well as beautiful chambers accompanied by a sense of accomplishment upon reaching them.

Our guide Andre was both immensely knowledgeable of the cave as well as a delight to be around, even allowing us to explore a small tunnel he'd never been down which took us to an area not even included in our tour. In his words, "Why not? You only live once!" I dearly recommend taking this advice and booking an off-the-boardwalk tour of Ngilgi.

“Fantastic! Two years in a row.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

My sister and i went on the Crystal Crawl tour today, it was fantastic!

Our guide, Tod was so informative and caring, you feel well looked after. The crystals are beautiful! We also went last year and Tod took us on the Riverbed tour. Both great but i liked the Crysal one better. The crystals are beautiful and so special, its such a unique cave i believe.

Some tips, wear long sleeve top and bottoms, sneekers are great. You will get a bit dirty but its part of the fun! We all loved it!
Thanks Tod!

“Fun for a broad age group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I took my son (11) on the two hour " Ancient riverbed tour" while my wife took my 8 year old daughter on the standard tour.
We all enjoyed ourselves immensely!
Our tour guide was brilliant. Informative, knowledgeable , reassuring and with a quiet, dry sense of humour.
The tour was not overly taxing, probably about right for a novice, but it was extremely interesting.
Most of the visitors photos have been taken using flash on their cameras and are not as spectacular as the cave actually is. Bracing your camera or phone on one of the handrails and turning the flash off gives a better result.

“so awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We went here for my husband's birthday and did the express adventure tour, was so much fun! Enjoyed it so much it made us want to go back and do one of the longer adventure tours. Highly recommend! Way more fun than sticking to the boardwalks and actually experiencing caving :)
