Cave
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Naracoorte Caves National Park by using our Naracoorte tourist route planner.

  • On the drive from Mt. Gambier to Adelaide, you will pass on this cultural heritage. We made with two guides, which have paid off, because the Guide could very well represent the history of the caves. We found it instructive.

  • Really fascinating place to visit if you are into natural history, caves, or just cool stuff! Shame we didn't get to do one of the adventures, but just going through the wet cave was amazing!
  • Really interesting and informative. There are guided tours on offer, we did several, they were great. The guides were interesting and deeply interested in the science and history here and were a highlight. The marsupial lion bones were amazing, it is incredible to think that such creatures were once living in Australia.
  • Was a cool place to visit. But do yourself a favour and check the cave tour times before you go there. So you can avoid lengthy wait times and maximize your time there.
  • Amazing to see bones from 500,000 years ago and very informative guide. Very highly recommended
  • Nice place. Cool caves.
