Create an itinerary including 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.

  • Great place to take children! Playground was entertaining. Lots of other things to do and discover. Well worth the hours spent there. 🤗
  • Toured the caves today, Alexandra Cave is so beautiful, an amazing magical wonderland underground. The Victoria Fossil cave has an amazing amount of fossils in it, 130 species so far with more caverns yet to be opened. Would highly recommend a visit. Loved it
  • So beautiful, tour guides are helpful and so knowledgeable. Amazing way to get out of the heat. Saw the Victoria fossil cave, blown away. - as a bone nerd
  • get around this awesome park, go and explore the caves. Learn some history about our great state and those that came before us, including the giant fossils !!
  • Beautiful caves. Did Stick-tomato and the Alexandra cave. Both suitable for children. Stick-Tomato has lots of stairs for access. Alexandra steep stairs on exit. So may not be suitable for those people with mobility difficulties.
