Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / South Australia / Naracoorte / Naracoorte Caves National Park
The 26 caves of Naracoorte Caves National Park have preserved a huge collection of fossils, and the park’s Wonambi Fossil Center offers tourists a rare chance to see what this part of the world was like nearly 200,000 years ago. The park, situated in the Limestone Coast tourism region, became a World Heritage Area in 1994. Though the caves are the area’s most notable attraction, the park itself is a tourist destination, with camping grounds, dormitory accommodations for large groups, picnic areas, and a small café. Explore the underground world of Australia’s caverns on a guided tour, led by expert cavers familiar with ancient fossil deposits, and don’t miss the famous Bat Cave, where thousands of bats breed each year.

Although the visit is worth for your interest, I couldn't just observe that the environment is not well maintained. Both the entrances to the caves and facilities within these are pretty badly finished I suppose that as a result of the lack of budget. That if interest, passion and preparation that demonstrate their guides make the visit a very pleasant and interesting experience.
My husband booked our family (with 9 & 11-year-olds) into the adventure caving for novice. This is at the Stick Tomato cave. I was scepticle & concerned about how hard this would be for me (physically... more »
It was 45C and the idea of going into a cave sounded pretty good. We did two caves, one on our own and the other guided. The first was the stick tomato cave and the guided was the Victoria fossil cave... more »
Would definitely recommend this if you're around this area. One of the better cave structures I've ever been to. Tour guides are very informative.
Great place plenty to see, the museum was offered to us free of charge but didn't have time to go though to see it. The tour guide that we had for our group was very knowledgeable of the whole caving system. Will return as there is so many more caves to see here and a bat santiuary as well.
World heritage site! Well preserved fossils, so much to look at and learn. The novice adventure tour in the wet cave/ stick tomato cave is worth the money. Very enthusiastic guides, especially Kyle (she) and friendly reception staff who will go out of their way to make the trip memorable. The caves cafe is a good little place for brunch and coffee or hot chocolate. We had the vegetarian burger and wrap and pumpkin and ginger soup, would rate it 8/10 easily ! Recommended ! Children friendly !
So glad we stopped hear. The cave tours were informative and well run. We'll be retiring for the adventure caves at a later date sans kids :)
Really well preserved caves and highly knowledgeable staff that clearly have a vested interest in their work and the history of the area. Staff did a great job of keeping the group together and moving even with the huge language barriers of some of the international visitors. We visited 5 seperate either guided or self guided caves and thoroughly enjoyed them all. There were several standout sections in some caves and plenty of opportunities for photos. Good but extremely busy cafe with quite a few options but expect a lineup. Overall our family would recommend you visit here, even though it is a little expensive when doing several cave tours. They also very often have specials. For example we paid for 3 caves and got 2 free.
