"Not only the lake is blue" Mount Gambier by iandsmith
Mount Gambier Travel Guide: 133 reviews and 335 photos
Mt. Gambier is synonymous with the Blue Lake but when you get there it almost literally "pales" into insignificance, especially if you're there at the wrong time of year.
The town and area have a lot going for them and I can understand why people tarry here.
There are vinyards nearby, along with everything from penguins to antique museums so there's a lot of titillating attractions without anything huge like a Disneyworld or such.
The kaarst landscape with its sinkholes makes for interesting possibilities and caving is certainly one of them though many are on private property.
The town has a rich history and a prosperous air being the major rural centre for some considerable distance.
- Pros:Varied attractions, nice landscape
- Cons:The Blue Lake wasn't that great
- In a nutshell:Worth spending more time there than I did!
Another example here of some attractive architecture featuring quoins, not too far from the fountain as it turns... more travel advice
These were a surprise, and a pleasant one at that. A sinkhole right in the middle of town. Site of the original water... more travel advice
