South Australia’s Limestone Coast region is home to some amazing parks and experiences, which is why this November the region is being celebrated as National Parks and Wildlife Service’s (NPWS) Parks of the Month.
Experiences can range from diving in underwater caves, snorkelling and exploring the magical underwater world of Piccaninnie Ponds Conservation Park, seeing the diverse birdlife of one of southern Australia’s largest freshwater lagoon systems at Bool Lagoon Game Reserve to heading underground and marvelling at the limestone formations at Tantanoola Caves Conservation Park or visiting South Australia’s only World Heritage Site at Naracoorte Caves National Park.
Located in the state’s South East, only a few hours from Adelaide, there is plenty to see and explore in this great region of South Australia.
District Ranger Ross Anderson has worked and lived in the region for 19 years and said the Limestone Coast has some wonderful parks that are waiting to be explored.
“We’re excited to offer a special program of activities in November so everyone can see why our national parks are such special places,” he said.
