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

Hear stories of early exploration, caving by candlelight and romantic escapades from your expert guide, as you make your way to the main show cave, where you will be free to discover the beauty of Ngilgi Cave.

Extensive boardwalks lead you through the impressive chambers of this underground wonderland, with the junior explorer's tunnel providing fun for little ones. Along the way, lighting illuminates hidden marvels and signage allows you to learn more about the remarkable variety of calcite crystal decorations.

Relish the rare opportunity to handle some cave crystals at the touch table - where a guide is available to answer all your burning questions. With a constant temperature of 20°C, the cave is an ideal place to visit year round.

Fantastic experience - highly recommended. We had Jake as our tour guide - nice friendly guy with good knowledge and info on the caves. He starts off taking you down and talking for about 15min before you’re allowed to head off and explore at your own pace. Once you’re down there there’s a lot of steps but there’s plenty of rest stops along the way too. Mostly it’s quite open and spacious with only some parts that are steep and narrow. Very picturesque and beautiful location. Overall, a great experience. We spent about an hour or so underground, but you could do less if you wanted to. Danny

Fantastic place to visit. The cave is massive and beautiful and very easy to get around and explore. Our two boys (5 & 3) loved it! Especially the children’s crawl tunnel. We will definitely visit again. Alison Baxter

Awesome experience a definite must do. Reuben our guide was great and very respectful while telling us the Aboriginal origins and the story behind the cave. It was very interesting. The semi guided tour was perfect and the small group of people in the tour allowed us to set our own pace and explore. It's a constant 20 degrees Celsius so no need for a jumper down there. There are alot of stairs so you will need to be able to handle a little leg workout. Janelle Gurney

Excellent experience! Kids (12 and 8 years old) love it. Booking is recommended. 1 hour is enough to cover all including photos. Closest cave to Dunsborough. Stephanie Djunaedi
