Naracoorte - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located in the Limestone Coast region Naracoorte and its surrounds offer the visitor a huge variety of attractions, from the many great townships, breathtaking scenery, abundance of wildlife, wetlands of international importance and South Australia’s only World Heritage Area. It is home to the largest living red gum, the biggest Field Days, fresh local produce, fine wine and unique attractions.

Naracoorte was named in 1869, following a decision to merge the two neighbouring towns of ‘Narracoorte’ and ‘Kincraig’. Its name is believed to have been derived from the Potaruwutjil word ‘ngarankort’, meaning ‘the place of the stone axe’. The Aboriginal people traded these and other tools during ceremonies at nearby swamplands over many hundred of years.

The township is renowned for its Scottish heritage and historic buildings, combine this with the nearby Bool Lagoon and Naracoorte Caves National Park, and you will find a destination that begs you to stay longer.
