Abstract: The large number of stratified fossil bearing karst caves in the Naracoorte region of southeastern South Australia provide a natural laboratory to address the timing of megafaunal extinctions in southern temperate Australia. Uranium thorium dates on speleothems, luminescence dates on quartz, and electron spin resonance (ESR) dates on megafaunal tooth enamel indicate sedimentary accumulation in the Naracoorte caves over the past 500 ka (Ayliffe et al. 1998; Moriarty et al. 2000).
