Roof Top Loop Walk at Naracoorte Caves

About the Walking Trail

The Roof Top Loop Walk at Naracoorte Caves provides wheelchair and pram access for people of all ages and abilities. It is suitable for those in wheelchairs and users of mobility aids, families with prams, the visually impaired and for those guests not wishing to go into a cave. Picnic tables and seating along the walk provide the ability to take a break and relax in a natural setting. The trail was opened in 2019.

The trail visits the top cave openings of Bat Cave and Blanche Cave, linking to the Wonambi Fossil Centre with the Bat Observation Centre. Strategically placed viewing platforms provide a glimpse into the cave interior, or even let you witness bats flying in or out of their underground home. There are plenty of interpretive signage and the use of cave markers indicate when you are over a cave.

See if you can spot one of the re-created mega fauna figurines along the walk giving an idea on the size of animals that roamed the area prior to extinction 45,000 years ago. You might even cross paths with some of our current native wildlife such as a kangaroo or its joey, an echidna or a possum.
