Look out for the ‘Community Welcomes Recreational Vehicles’ signage on your next trip. Rest easy knowing that your destination is equipped to welcome you and your caravan, camper trailer, motorhome or campervan. These towns have made a commitment to offer easily accessible long vehicle short term parking within the town centre. They also have clear directional signage to their local visitor information centre. This month we are profiling Naracoorte, South Australia.
Located in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia, the town of Naracoorte is home to Australia’s only World Heritage listed fossil site, Naracoorte Caves National Park. This national park preserves Australia’s most complete marsupial fossil record for the past 500,000 years. At your visit to the caves, join an adventure caving tour. Or, choose the leisurely option of a self-guided walk through Wet Cave.
Enjoy the magnificent scenery and listen carefully for the creatures of the seasonal wetlands at Bool Lagoon, a Ramsar Wetland of International Significance. Bool Lagoon is one of the largest and most diverse lagoons in southern Australia. It’s home to a range of wildlife and a refuge for rare and endangered birds. There is a boardwalk over the wetlands which gives the feeling of walking on water.
The Naracoorte Regional Art Gallery houses a permanent Collection of Australian Art and showcases local and visiting artists. The Sheep’s Back Museum tells the stories of the Australian wool industry and houses the Naracoorte Visitor Information Centre (VIC). Drop into the VIC for local intelligence on events, activities, attractions, brochures, maps and holiday ideas.
