I meant to stay overnight in Mt Gambier on my way back from Melbourne, but took too long on the Great Ocean Road and had to stop off in Warrnambool instead. I did spend a few hours here though, got the general idea of the place, saw the Umpherston sinkhole and the Blue Lake area.

The entrance to Mount Gambier is quite impressive if coming from Victoria, tall pine trees on all sides announce that this is South Australia.

I wanted to see a cave before leaving and stopped off at the Tantanoola Cave only to find a locked roller door barring the entrance, and an empty kiosk nearby, I had to pay to be able to see it. There was a trail above the cave however that led to good views...
