The Wet Cave
Naracoorte World Heritage Caves
Naracoorte, South Australia
Naracoorte Caves National Park is South Australia’s only World Heritage site. The site was officially recognised in 1994 because of the importance of the fossils in the caves.
The park is home to over 100 known fossil deposits, preserving the bones of megafauna that became extinct roughly 60,000 years ago.
Naracoorte Caves preserves Australia’s most complete fossil record for the past 500,000 years. (source-Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources)
