Naracoorte Caves

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Visit South Australia’s only World Heritage listed site and discover one of the world’s most important fossil sites. For over 500,000 years giant marsupials such as the wombat-like Diprotodon, Thylacoleo the marsupial lion and giant kangaroos roamed the Limestone Coast, with many of their fossils now on display. With five different caves to explore, plus adventure caving, photographic tour options, a brand new adventure playground, café, campgrounds and an above-ground accessible loop-walk, Naracoorte Caves offers experiences for everyone.
