Always a reliable lunch with a difference, as the main eating area is outdoors. Food is very nice and the coffee just lovely. This is our go-to place to chill out for a quiet and relaxing lunch in the fresh air as we are locals. There is also a lovely indoor dining area. Food is always nice and enjoyable with... More

These caves are really fascinating. The Victoria Fossil Cave is a must to see, you get an a wonderful journey back into the past. The guides are very informative and actually our guide Gav, had a great sense of humour, which always makes for an enjoyable visit.

The caves here are absolutely beautiful to look at! And for the kids who might find the caves boring, the fossil centre is also a bit of fun with their animated ancient creatures!

We visited the Alexandra Cave at Naracoorte. This is a World Heritage site of some significance. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. The lunch at the cafe was delicious, nothing like a nice hot bowl of soup on a cold day.

Fascinating place to visit: peek into the recent past and how the caves were found and toured in the 1960s; but better, peek into Australia's ancient past via the fossils of mega fauna and other creatures who fell into the caves and never came out. The cave features are also beautiful and give insight into the long-term climate of the... More

Did the Bat Cave and Blanche Cave tour with Danielle who was just brilliant. She knows all sorts of quirky history of the area and made the tour fun and very interesting.

Naracoorte Caves are a real gem of which so many people are not aware. We spent two days here as part of a school excursion and it was brilliant. The amenities are excellent, the guides are incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and there was so much to learn and enjoy. Seeing the bat colony (via infrared cameras in their caves) and...

We thought it too expensive to do all caves, so we just chose to do the Fossil cave at $60pp for an hour tour.Very informative and could have spent much longer there taking it all in. When we purchased our tickets a visit to the Fossil cave they threw in free entry to the Fossil centre and wet cave. Recommend... More

The campground is lovely with a clean well maintained amenities block. We were fortunate that it was not busy when we visited. There are numerous cave tours to choose from. I think it is important to do the Victoria fossil cave as this is where there are fossils still left to see as they were discovered. There are also some... More
