There are two options for your Ngilgi Cave Adventures from Margaret River: the Crystal Crawl Adventure, and the Ultimate Ngilgi Adventure.

There is no hotel pick-up for these tours and all three options start at the same place. Please make your own way to the meeting point at the Ngilgi Cave ticket office. Ngilgi Cave is located 5 minutes drive from Yallingup, 10 minutes drive from Dunsborough, 30 minutes drive from Busselton and approximately 30 minutes drive from Margaret River town.

All the tours are conducted in English but translations of the tour information into most European languages are available on site.

Crystal Crawl Adventure:
The Ngilgi Cave is at least 500,000 years old and lies beneath the limestone ridge which forms Cape Naturaliste near the town of Yallingup at the northern end of the Margaret River region.

The Cave is named because of its association with an Aboriginal legend describing the battle between a good spirit (Ngilgi) and an evil spirit (Wolgine). With its dazzling display of stalactites, stalagmites, columns and shawl formations, Ngilgi has been a major tourist attraction ever since it was brought to public attention by Edward Dawson in 1899.

On this 3-hour tour you will make your way through the most stunning sections of Ngilgi Cave with an expert cave guide. If you love the romance of caves, then breath-takingly beautiful sections like Pinch Gut, Double Squeeze, Pot Belly and Crystal Crawl are just waiting for you.

The tour ends back at the Ngilgi Cave ticket office and you need to make arrangements to return to your accommodation.

Ultimate Ngilgi Adventure:
Experience everything that awe-inspiring Ngilgi Cave has to offer on The Ultimate Ngilgi Adventure. Challenge yourself and be rewarded for your adventurous spirit as you discover the deepest, darkest and most exclusive depths and sections of the Cave.

This 4-hour tour is fully guided by an expert cave guide and takes in the Ancient River Bed and Crystal Crawl routes plus more. On the way, you will learn about the extraordinary geological formations and hear the Aboriginal legends.
