Straddling the Riddock Highway in the state’s south-east, Naracoorte is a laid-back town at the centre of thriving pastoral, agricultural and viticultural industries.

The town’s dependence on the wool industry is traced in the Sheep’s Back Museum, while you can watch the manufacture of woollen products from the viewing gallery of the Mini Jumbuk.

Two district cave systems, Victoria and Alexandra, offer contrasts in subterranean formations, and you can take a top-of-the ground walk back in time in the Wonambi Fossil Centre, which presents an ancient landscape in which such long-extinct megafauna such as the Diprotodon, Procotodon and Thylacoleo Carnifex prowl. Bent-wings dart in the Bat Teleview Centre.

More recent, colonial history is reflected in the steepling spire of St Andrews Presbyterian Church and St Pauls Anglican Church, which has added a war memorial to the original church architecture in the form of a consecrated lychgate. Typically for an Australian bush town, Naracoorte's oldest surviving building is the Commercial Hotel whose doors have been swinging in and out since 1861.
