Described as the city of ‘craters, lakes and caves’, Mount Gambier was built on the slopes of an extinct volcano. Visit the remarkable Blue Lake. The largest of three volcanic craters has filled with water over time and puts on a real show from November when the water turns a brilliant turquoise blue.

Walk to the Centenary Tower for a remarkable view, or picnic at the Valley Lake Crater, with its wildlife park and boardwalk. On your journey, stop and explore the many art galleries, studios and markets and sample local wines and cheese. Mount Gambier boasts a wide range of accommodation types, extensive and modern shopping precincts, a variety of restaurants, pubs and cafes, adventure playgrounds, boat and canoe hire and more.
