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.

The guide takes you to the entrance of the cave, gives you a bit of a spiel and then leaves you to explore at you own pace. It’s a great experience wandering through the various chambers and taking in the features. Well worth the trip Colin Sloan
This cave was a perfect stop on our journey. With tours every 30 minutes and a tour guide there to educate you and answer all your questions. Very educational and amazing to learn how the rain water creates the straws you see. The tour guide took us down and gave us some education about the caves then we were able to explore them on our own. Make sure to check out the kids crawl space your face is inches away from the cave and awesome for young explores to see. Pack light as you will be walking a lot. You are allowed to take photos and videos we wished we brought a torch to see as not all areas are fully lit up. Took us about an hour to explore the entire cave. Staff was very polite in the gift shop and the entry fee was very reasonable. Carley Young
Great Cave to explore at your own pace. It is humid so I recommend that you wear a short sleeved shirt if exploring in the winter months Kathryn Bufton
Went for the ancient riverbed adventure tour, was absolutely memorable! Reuben was a great tour guide and told us some great info on the history of the cave. Would highly recommend for anyone who's daring but not too daring (the cave explorer tour is apparently a little more challenging)! Abbey K
Excellent formations. Semi-guided so you can go at your own pace. Adventure tour available - booking necessary. Allow at least one hour. Not suitable for anyone with mobiliy, heart or lung issues. Many steps! Dyson Wilkes
