Ngilgi Cave, WA, Australia

Ngilgi Cave, previously known as Yallingup Cave, is a Karst cave to the northeast of Yallingup, in the southwest of Western Australia. It was discovered by European settlers when Edward Dawson went searching for stray horses in 1899. He acted as a guide to the cave from December 1900 to November 1937.

Between Dunsborough and Yallingup, this 500,000-year-old cave is associated in Wardandi spirituality with the victory of the good spirit Ngilgi over the evil spirit Wolgine. To the Wardandi people it became a kind of honeymoon location. A European man first stumbled upon it in 1899 while looking for his horse. Formations include the white Mother of Pearl Shawl and the equally beautiful Arab’s Tent and Oriental Shawl . Tours depart every half hour. Check online for other options.
