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.

Our group of 12, including 6 kids, had an absolute blast here.The guide was knowledgeable and after a short spiel left us to explore on our own. The cave had enough the keep it interesting for all, with the crawl through proving a big hit with the younger ones. Some amazing structures. For those with kids be aware the entrance and exit are through the gift shop, so be prepared for the inevitable "I wants". Still a great day out especially if it's raining. Blue Moose

Beautiful caves, 15 min guided tour from the start of the caves. There are two sections you can tackle, left is the acoustic cave which is easy as not many steps and loved singing in there! To the right is the main section which has many more steps but lots of rest stops. Low to moderate fitness required. Dan

The guides were great. Very knowledgeable. Book early during peak times - at the very latest the day before as it gets booked out fast. Many people were turned away while my family was there as all tickets for the day were already sold out Daniel Mason
