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.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Book ahead in school holidays as numbers in the groups are restricted due to covid-19. Wear trainers as some of the paths are steep and not entirely flat! The tour guides are very knowledgeable and take you to the beginning of the caves. From there you wander about on your own, but the guide can be found if you have any questions. The caves themselves are truly amazing to look at. Jackie Brown

Dame Nelly Melba once performed inside the large chamber of this cave. This cave is partially guided plus you'll have time to explore at your own pace as well. For the children there is a slide tunnel, it's for the bigger children too. This is one cave that the whole family can enjoy. Make sure to have a good look inside the Fairy cave too, you might just see a little magic. Dan (戴麒龍)

A fun cave to explore. At your own speed. Semi guided with a happy helpful guide. Some head bumping sections, but what do you expect.... its a cave. Try the bit called the tunnel of doom. Well worth it. Marc Whatley
