Ngilgi Cave, Yallingup Reviews - Write a Review
I liked the fact that it's a semi guided tour. The tour guide will lead us to a starting point whereby we can continue exploring at our own pace before meeting up with the guide later. The cave has some benches which is good for my elderly parents to take a rest. The steps can be quite steep with bends but it's manageable. It's really a beautiful cave.
Absolutely loved this cave, if you are questioning a visit you should definitely go. We were lucky to go on a smaller tour with a 30 minute talk and then we were left to explore and enjoy. We were told that at a specific point we should lay on the floor, close our eyes and then open again staring at the ceiling, amazing. Lots of different bits to see in this cave and a slide for children, which was just as much fun for us! We booked our tickets in Margaret River Visitor Center but you can book on arrival if there is space!
Nice staff. Very helpful and friendly. A must go for cave experience. Very nicely done to cater for visitors.
Pretty poor customer service. Over the phone, was told they had availability at 10.30am but I had to purchase tickets online. That's fine. Okay, so if I purchase them online can we come for the 10.30 slot? No. Once you purchase your tickets, you have to wait 12 hours to book a slot. So in what sense is the 10.30 slot available? Afternoon was available, but I couldn't book or pay over the phone, just had to rock up and hope we were in luck. Booking online for the afternoon slot was also not possible because of the "12 hour wait". I know the caves are a license to print money, so I don't expect the situation to improve. But my advice, if you really want to go, is book online at least a day in advance and don't expect much help from staff, who both times I interacted with them were friendly, but uninterested. This was our second attempt at visiting these caves, so we're going somewhere else instead.
Cool little half tour for the back ground then a self guided walk through the rest of the cave. Worth seeing.
