As the state's only world heritage site, Naracoorte Caves National Park is an important fossil area. The 28 known caves in the park trapped ancient animals that could not escape after falling in through holes. Through the years, their bones have created a rich fossil record for the area. Some of those animals have even been reconstructed based on this record. Surprisingly, one of the scientists who studied the caves and examined the bones was Father Julian Edmund Tenison Woods, a Catholic priest.
Unlike the nearby Tantanoola Caves, Naracoorte Caves are not wheelchair accessible. However, the park does have an above-ground walking trail that is. Roof Top Loop Walk provides access for everyone regardless of ability. You do not need to go into a cave to catch a glimpse of the world beneath. Interpretive signage and viewing platforms are plentiful along the walk. The reconstructed ancient animals can also be seen if you look carefully.
As the name suggests, you will be walking on the roof of Alexandra Cave, Blanche Cave and Bat Cave. But, there is no need to be concerned especially after reading about how Hell's Hole was formed. These cave roofs are rather thick.
Naracoorte Caves National Park is located along Wonambi Road approximately ten kilometres south of the township of Naracoorte. Ample car parking, as well as a cafe, nature playground and toilets, are available onsite.
