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.

  • 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.
  • Amazing! Must see, would be a day trip to make sure you're able to see it all. A great experience
  • We had the best time & our guide Jake was just the best. Had him for two of the caves & then came across him at others later in the week - really knows his stuff & was great with everyone. AWESOME
  • The tour is good, we had been to 3 caves, the tour guides are friendly and very informative. Awesome places. Wish we have more time to go around.
  • Great place! Went for the evening Bat Tour and saw 1000s of bats fly out of the cave, as well as a tour of some other big caves. Guide also showed us fossils and inside the bat caves with infared cameras. Very informative and interesting tour.
