Mount Gambier Region

Built on the slopes of a dormant volcano, Mount Gambier is South Australia’s largest regional city.

People flock to the city of “craters, lakes and caves” to see the amazing Blue Lake, which in summer, turns a brilliant turquoise colour.

Mount Gambier’s location half way between Adelaide and Melbourne makes it an ideal stopover for travellers to and from Kangaroo Island, The Great Ocean Road or the Grampians, it is also a perfect destination for longer stays to enjoy the natural and cultural beauty of the surrounding region, the caves and sinkholes, coastline, rivers, lakes and wineries.
