Curramulka  South Australia

The small, Yorke Peninsula town of Curramulka is guardian to what is acknowledged as the most extensive chain of limestone caves in the southern hemisphere. But, sadly, the sheer size of the system is also the reason why so little is known about it.

Because of the prohibitive cost of opening up the caves, they are considered too dangerous for amateur cavers so the entire system is closed to the public. The only regular visitors are members of the Police Rescue Squad who do part of their training in the caverns.

Curramulka is within easy driving distance of the coastal resorts towns of Port Victoria and Port Vincent and is only 15km north-east of the regional ‘capital’ of Minlaton.

Farming land was first opened up in the 1870s and Curramulka enjoyed its heyday in the late 19th and early 20th centuries when most farming produce moved through nearby Port Julia.

The town's commercial importance dwindled when Ardrossan to the north became the main regional port for wheat and wool, but recent signs indicate that Curramulka is back in a strong growth mode.
