Ngilgi Cave, Yallingup

4.6
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.

  • I liked the fact that it's a semi guided tour. The tour guide will lead us to a starting point whereby we can continue exploring at our own pace before meeting up with the guide later. The cave has some benches which is good for my elderly parents to take a rest. The steps can be quite steep with bends but it's manageable. It's really a beautiful cave.
  • Fairly extensive cave. Surprisingly dry and not so cold inside. Starts with a very short guided tour, then you are free to.explore on your own, which is pretty cool.
  • Absolutely loved this cave, if you are questioning a visit you should definitely go. We were lucky to go on a smaller tour with a 30 minute talk and then we were left to explore and enjoy. We were told that at a specific point we should lay on the floor, close our eyes and then open again staring at the ceiling, amazing. Lots of different bits to see in this cave and a slide for children, which was just as much fun for us! We booked our tickets in Margaret River Visitor Center but you can book on arrival if there is space!
  • Great caves and reasonable family prices. The semi guided tour was nice becuase you go at your own pace. Hard work at times, not for the elderly. Toilets are a bit feral, big spiders! Would reccomend to anyone for a visit if down this way.
  • This is a majestic landscape. You have to be careful if you take the children and do not touch the stalks
