Since Belgian beers are listed on the World Heritage List, (and we know they are AWESOME,) we had to visit the only World Heritage Listed attraction of South Australia! The Naracoorte Caves National Park is a group of ancient caves with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. It is also a place where great prehistoric marsupial bones have been found. We got to see fantastic replicas and some of the real stuff in the visitors center and the caves. Up to you to decide which are the real ones!

Here a fact about bones! When you got nothing but bones left, you can see the difference between mammal and marsupial animals on the mandibula (lower jaw). There is an extra piece of bone on the lateral surface, that only marsupials have.
