A cafe, playground, barbecue facilities and walk trails make Ngilgi Cave a fun place to visit for the entire family.

This is the first time I find a cave visit interesting! Worth a visit with the informative guided tour! Need some energy for climbing up and down the stairs though.

Hi 19Kerry48, Thanks for visiting and for the post. Ngilgi is a fantastic cave to adventure in with children, just the right amount of amazing formations and challenge for the little ones. Safe travels in the future, Cave Staff

Ideal to explore with kids as they can crawl through a tunnel. After a brief introduction of staff, you can explore it yourself, another staff member will provide further information in the main chamber. Definitely worth a visit.

Love Ngilgi Cave. Fascinating and captivating structures greatly enhanced by good lighting, no coloured nor glaring lights. Was fortunate to also experience Josh Whiteland from Koomal Dreaming playing his didgeridoo inside. Magical.

Tour led by Josh (Koomal). Very knowledgeable and friendly and played a rousing song on the Didgeridoo in the amphitheatre.

We chose to only visit one cave and it was outstanding. We were lucky that there were only 4 people in our time-slot so had plenty of time with the guide. It's also good that you are free to explore the caves unguided too so...More
