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.

Excellent experience. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly which enhanced the visit. Caves are definitely worth a view as there are some spectacular formations on hand. Waited at the deepest part of the cave for the other visitors to pass though, and it was pure silence. With the lights focussed on the stalactites / mites it was serene. Will visit again.

Fantastic place to explore the caves and part of history. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. A point to consider if you're going to visit is the 300+ steps you have to go down, and up again, some very narrow, and some high steps, if you're a tall person be careful not to hit your head too. Worth a visit if you have a level of fitness. S G
