Naracoorte Caves - World Heritage on our Doorstep

Naracoorte Caves - World Heritage on our Doorstep is an ambitious project to use visual and performing art to tell the science-related story of South Australia’s only World Heritage listed site, the Naracoorte Caves, to the wider community.

The visual and performing art will leverage the Naracoorte Caves’ status as one of the world's 10 greatest fossil sites.

The story of the Naracoorte Caves has been told in the artworks completed by young artists during the July 2017 school holidays.


The art works created at the workshops are on display at the “Naracoorte Caves - World Heritage on our doorstep” exhibition at the Naracoorte Regional Art Gallery from 9th August to 10th September 2017. Everyone is welcome to drop into the Gallery and contribute to the story telling by sharing your reflections of the artworks and your connection to the Naracoorte Caves.


Michael Mills (aka Professor Flint) from Heaps Good Production will use the stories to create and produce a live performance.


Development and writing of the work is now ongoing, and will continue over the next several months.


Performances are scheduled to be held in the second week of the April School holidays, 2018 in Naracoorte.


Funding support of $10,000 has been provided by Inspiring South Australia. The Inspiring South Australia Program is supported by the Australian Government through the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, the South Australian Department of State Development, the University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia, Flinders University and the South Australian Museum.
