An unexpectedly wonderful town, Mount Gambier offers something totally different. Mount Gambier’s unique natural features include volcanic crater lakes and amazing sinkholes. The sinkholes have been transformed into beautiful gardens, and the volcanic crater lakes are splendid, particularly the aptly named Blue Lake. Mount Gambier is not really on the tourist trail, but it deserves to be. There are plenty of opportunities to get out walking and explore the town’s impressive natural sights.
