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.

  • Went on our own tour without guidance. The cave was not very big and not very interesting. Saw much better ones in Australia. Not worth going there especially. Quite disappointing.
  • Nice place, During off-peak season the staff will give you discount. Cafe opens after 10 am. Won't find cafe at other caves so have some coffee at the cafe near Naracoorte cave reception.
  • The cave was wonderful, we did the quick half hour tour which showed off some beautiful caves and formations and provided history on the caves. The Cafe was ok, nothing special, but had ok coffee and food, but note there is no breakfast menu for during the week, but staff accommodated and made a us a bacon and egg sandwich which was tasty.
  • SUPER place only did wet cave and animated animals but kids loved it (6yo and 3yo). Loads of space to walk and run too.
  • Amazing caves. Good facilities. World heritage site.
