Attractions

Mount Gambier And Limestone Coast


Mount Gambier is home to the magnificent Blue Lake. It is surrounded by mysterious caves and sinkholes due to the volcanic nature of the land. It was discovered by Lt. James Grant in the early 1800's.

Entrance

 

UMPHERSTON CAVE
At the entrance to the Umpherston Cave this monument to the natural limestone features in the area, greets you. A short walk through the park reveals the sinkhole itself. Wooden steps, hidden behind cascading vines, take you down into the centre of the sinkhole and its picturesque garden full of hydrangeas and home to a large family of very friendly possums. The best time to see and feed the possums is at dusk.
