Owner description: The caves have preserved an outstanding fossil collection. The Wonambi Fossil Centre offers visitors the opportunity to discover what the area was like over 200,000 years ago.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Caves and found our guide to be very thorough with his understanding of its history. He also showed an obvious love and passion for his job. Well worth every dollar spent (not that it was excessively expensive).

Amazing place with some very exciting caves.

Be sure to plan ahead. The tours are scheduled, so find out which ones are on for the day you're visiting. Most of the tours are scheduled for the morning.

We were lucky enough to go on the bat tour. It was very interesting and informative. We've visited caves in other parts of the world, but these were by far the oldest.

The exhibits, some of which are free, would be great for kids.

Take your hats, sunscreen, and wear sensible walking shoes.

If you can be there at dusk, you'll be able to see the bats leave the caves for their nightly hunt.

My partner and I visited the Naracoorte Caves during our road trip from SA to VIC. It was one of the highlights of our trip. Unfortunately we only had time to see the self-guided "Tomato-Cave" and chose to see the "Bat Cave" as approx $20each. It was interesting to see the natural formation of the caves over time. Entering the cave the temperature dropped significantly and we were impressed by the set up of the lighting within the cave to give the viewer a good experience. The "Bat Cave" consist of a tour to a room where you get to watch the Bats in their natural habitat through high quality cameras while listening to an informative guide talk you through their behaviours, diets, size etc... You then walk to the entrance of the Bat Caves where they enter/exit the caves at feeding times - unfortunately we were there in the middle of the day and could not see the bats. Finally we viewed an indoor man made replica of the area and animals... I was impressed with the sound and visuals making it seem like a large stormy room and the large and small moving animal models and information plaques around the room. Thoroughly Enjoyed ourselves and would like to do some of the other cave tours if we ever get back and visit again.

Very nice cave that is easy to access (some stairs) not the most spectacular cave but great for a quick introduction to the cave world with lots of facts from the knowledgeable guide.

My husband booked our family (with 9 & 11-year-olds) into the adventure caving for novice. This is at the Stick Tomato cave. I was scepticle & concerned about how hard this would be for me (physically & mentally). However, our family was the only ones joining the tour. We had a fantastic guide, Danielle. She was very experienced and knew how to get us through some tight sections of the cave. We all had a great time & my 11-year-old is already talking about coming back for the Advanced Adventure Cave!
