Naracoorte Caves National Park, South Australia’s only World Heritage Site, (previously a Conservation Park) was proclaimed by the Governor of South Australia as a National Park on 18 January 2001. It is located in the Limestone Coast tourism region in the southeast of South Australia. The importance of the fossil record at Naracoorte Caves was officially recognised in 1994, when the site was inscribed on the World Heritage List. The park preserves 600ha of remnant vegetation, with 26 caves contained within the 305ha World Heritage Area. Show cave tours are guided by professional interpreters through highly decorated caves with some tours visiting significant fossil deposits. Modern technology has been utilised to show visitors the normally inaccessible interior of Bat Cave, where thousands of bats breed each year. Other opportunities include adventure caving, a selection of specialty tours and special events.
