A trip to the Limestone Coast wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Naracoorte Caves. Recognised as one of the world’s most important fossil sites, the caves offer experiences for all ages.
For more than 500,000 years, giant animals roamed the Naracoorte area. Falling into well hidden pitfall caves, their fossilised skeletons were left behind, giving scientists a rare glimpse of long extinct animal life.
Giant marsupials such as the wombat-like Diprotodon, Thylacoleo the marsupial lion and giant kangaroos lived in the area. These animals, along with others, have been recreated into life-sized models at the renowned Wonambi Fossil Centre.
The park’s tourist caves boast a glorious display of stalagmites and stalactites. A variety of tours are on offer, showcasing amazing fossil and limestone formations. Adventure caving, allowing you to crawl, slide and squeeze through tight tunnels and chambers, is also available. There is also an on-site café and camp sites are available.
*Please note during extreme weather events the park may be closed for guests safety. Visit our website for further details.
