Favorite thing: Umpherston isn't really a cave - it's a mostly dry sink hole, in which a garden has been planted in the bottom, but it is a cavern and does have rock overhangs.

Fondest memory: Umpherston is always one of the places in Mt Gambier which gives me the fondest memories - at night it's for the possums, by turns shy, yet inquisitive, and some are downright bold and would climb up your leg if you don't give them something to eat fast enough.

And in daytime, I enjoy going there to admire the gardens, so pretty that it's no wonder couples often get married down there. Very picturesque for photos.
