Tantanoola Cave is a highly decorated cavern, found at the southern base of the remarkable "Up and Down" cliffs. Formed by distinctive pink and brown dolomite, the cliffs are a distinctive feature in themselves.
The cave was discovered in 1930 by a local boy who was hunting rabbits. When his ferret disappeared down a hole and did not emerge, the boy went and got his brother and together they found the cave.

Tantanoola Caves Conservation Park is operated by the SA National Parks & Wildlife. It is the only wheelchair accessible cave in the region.
