Situated in South Australia, Mount Gambier is a popular tourist destination, especially for travellers between Melbourne and Adelaide. Located on a stunning volcanic landscape and endless pine trees, it is the perfect place to take a breather and surround yourself with picture perfect landscapes.
One of the attractions that tourists flock to is the Blue Lake, where the water keeps changing colour in different seasons, from a deep blue in November to a greyish hue in April. There are a few other lakes worth checking out nearby, including the Valley Lake, the Little Blue Lake and other smaller lakes located around the volcanic area.
Another recommended spot to visit around Mount Gambier is the Cave Gardens, where many families come to picnic. Most visitors climb up to the top of the Centenary Tower there to catch a glimpse of the breath-taking view from the top. If that doesn’t do it for you, then there’s cave diving, hiking, walking trails and plenty of trekking opportunities.
Getting in and around the place is best left to a car hire to Mount Gambier, in an airport truck, since it gives you access to some brilliant views while you’re on the road. Car rentals at Mount Gambier also include trucks, for some off-roading and trail driving.
