Tour guide conducts an education session inside Ngilgi Cave, Yallingup WA.

NGILGI CAVE

This exquisitely decorated cave, with its stunning stalactites, stalagmites, helictites and beautifully coloured shawls, was Western Australia’s first tourist attraction.

Ngilgi Cave is located near Yallingup, at the northern end of the Cape to Cape region. European discovery occurred in 1899, with the cave formerly being known as Yallingup Cave.
The Semi-Guided Show Cave Tour is approximately one-hour duration, and begins with an introductory talk from the cave guide while being led down into the first chamber or ‘The Amphitheatre’. Visitors can then explore at their own pace, while another guide stationed in the centre of the cave can answer questions and provide more information on the many beautiful areas within the cave.

Ngilgi Cave also offers ‘Adventure Tour’ options – giving thrill-seekers the opportunity to take a hard-hat and lamp and venture off the boardwalks – for a two, three or four-hour adventure, led by an experienced guide.
