After departing Adelaide at 8.00 am we arrive in Naracoorte to be welcomed by a representative from the Naracoorte Caves. After lunch, there will be a talk on the World Heritage management of the only site on the planet that has a continuous fossil record spanning the past 500,000 years.

One of many highlights is helping out in the paleontology lab in sifting through fossils. Working on the digs allows the discovery of fossil that will give a unique window on the climate, vegetation and environment of the time when these animals lived, as well as a better understanding of the evolution of the Australian fauna.

Later in the afternoon we make our way to the Wonambi Fossil Centre. The knowledge gleaned from the fossil deposits has been used to recreate the Naracoorte landscape, as it would have appeared 200,000 years ago.

In the evening enjoy a delicious Aussie BBQ around the campfire.

Overnight accommodation is very comfortable rooms located within the Naracoorte Caves National Park.

A highlight will be the opportunity to walk around the famous “Blue Lake” crater as well as exploring some amazing sink holes. Before making our way back to Naracoorte, time will be spent tasting fine wines in the famous “Coonawarra” wine region. Overnight at Naracoorte Cave National Park.
