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.

    Lovely day out and a good hideout during the rainy season at Margaret river. Steps were ok, with plenty of resting pit stops along the way, not as strenuous as imagined.  more »

    We had a great time with our 6 and 8 year old. They loved the tunnel so much they went on it about a dozen times! Caves were spectacular, we spent about an hour there in amazement. Well worth a visit.

    What a truly magical place. Well worth a visit. Take your time to fully appreciate all the aspects of the cave and definitely listen to the guide in the cave explaining the beauty of your surroundings.

    An excellent cave so those wanting just a bit more than a walk around cave. Stairs, ladders and walkways will have some challenging areas for elderly. Worth a visit.
