Naracoorte with a population of 5000 is a medium sized rural town and was formed from the merger of two towns, Kincraig, founded in 1845 by Scottish explorer William Macintosh, and Narracoorte, established as a government settlement in 1847.
Historically the town relied on sheep and cattle farming, but now tourism has become a major industry with attractions that include Naracoorte Caves National Park which is World Heritage-listed and world recognised wetland, Bool Lagoon.
