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.

  • Great place to go under for the most spectacular views of the caves system,and the tour was well conducted and easy to understand. I would recommend it to others as a must see.

  • Fantastic place for families! Would recommend to stay the night as a day trip will not let you experience everything. Friendly and experienced staff. The caves are beautiful and easy to walk! Visited the Alexandra Cave and the Victoria Fossil Cave which were both so amazing. !!! Not wheelchair or pram accessible, you need to be able to walk up and down high stepped stairs if you intend to visit !!!
  • Some amazing formations and information shared by the guide. There's a lovely little cafe with great coffee and a playground for the little ones. If you fancy seeing a few caves put aside half a day or so for this!
