The Blue Lake
The Blue Lake, beautiful all year round, mysteriously changes colour in warmer weather. A sealed road takes you all around the perimeter. Stop at the lookouts for panoramic views, or you can walk around the lake. At only 3.6km it is an easy 45 minute walk.
The lush beauty of the Umpherston Sinkhole, also known as the “sunken gardens”, has to be seen to be believed. Appreciate its size and depth from the viewing platforms at the top of the sinkhole, then walk down into the sinkhole, along terraces and behind the hanging vines. The resident colony of possums make an appearance at dusk and enjoys being fed fresh fruit. Free Entry.
Main Corner Complex & Riddoch Art Gallery
The Main Corner emerges from the historic dolomite building that connects us to Mount Gambier’s history featuring free interactive displays that will appeal to adults and children alike. The Wreck of the Admella comes to life. Touch screens tell the history of Mount Gambier. See cave paintings and view the diorama of Australia’s oldest boomerang. Enter the Riddoch Art Gallery, South Australia’s largest regional gallery, featuring local collections, changing exhibitions of local artists as well as exhibitions of national importance. Free entry.
Cave Garden State Heritage Area, this sinkhole was the original source of water for the early settlers. Famous for its roses, the Cave Garden is a great place for a picnic. Venture out onto the suspended viewing platforms for an awesome view into the sinkhole. During winter, storm water run-off makes its way to the sinkhole forming a spectacular waterfall. It eventually enters the underground water system which possibly feeds into the Blue Lake. With its spectacular lighting it’s well worth a visit at night. Free entry.
The Valley Lake
A quieter option, this lake has a well-fenced adventure playground, lookouts, nature walks and free barbecue facilities. There is also a free wildlife conservation park with koalas and kangaroos.
The magnificent view is worth the short, steep walk from the car park to the highest point in the area, Centenary Tower. Take a great photo of the Valley Lake and view other volcanic craters. Centenary Tower is open when the flag is flying. Climb to the top of the tower for an even better view, 190 metres above sea level for spectacular views of the lakes, City and the beautiful countryside.
Approximately a 50km drive from Mount Gambier, Coonawarra is a small strip of land in the heart of the Limestone Coast. It is one of South Australia's many wine regions, well known for producing world class red wines, in particular, Cabernet Sauvignon. There are many wineries that open their cellar doors for wine tastings.
