Shannon Architects

Naracoorte Caves Visitor Centre

The Naracoorte Caves Conservation Park contains the World Heritage listed Victoria Fossil Cave. Shannon Architects provided Masterplanning services building on our designs for the original Wonambi Visitor Centre.

Masterplan proposals for the Victoria Fossil Cave Precinct and "Roof Top" walk have been implemented to the practices designs.

The Visitor Centre is the primary focus for visitors and contains site reception, information and amenities functions.

The significant interactive display component provides visitors with a walk through experience of the pre-historic Flora and Fauna of the region. A large volume is required to house the scientifically accurate robotic representations of the Mega-Fauna and design concepts ensure that the visual impact on the site is minimal.
