Ranges & Cross Border Creeks
The Ranges and Cross Border Creeks subregion is home to the World Heritage Naracoorte Caves, an unparalleled caving experience, with a rich fossil history and nature-based tourism experiences. The caves preserve the bones of megafauna that became extinct around 40,000 years ago and is Australia's most complete marsupial fossil record for the past 500,000 years. Large protected native vegetation areas in the subregion provide refuge for many of the 248 native flora and bird species including the critically endangered red-tailed black cockatoo.
Primary production focuses on dairy, livestock, and horticulture including the renowned Wrattonbully and part of the Padthaway grape growing and wine making regions. Agriculture is the biggest employer, followed by manufacturing (meat processing), retail trade and health care.
We acknowledge and respect the traditional owners of these ancestral lands, Potaruwutij to the North, Jardwadjali to the East, Bunganditj to the South and Meintangk to the West.
