Mount Gambier and surrounds are an ideal family holiday destination.

Begin at Mount Gambier Visitor & Discovery centre where staff will provide you with a free information pack and help you choose the most suitable activities for your children. The Discovery Centre is also great for children as it presents the history and geology of the area with the use of exciting interactive displays.

Mount Gambier's location which is half way between Adelaide and Melbourne makes it an ideal stopover for travellers. 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.

Mount Gambier is perfectly positioned to host events and conferences. With many conference and meeting facilities as well as outstanding sporting and recreational facilities it is an ideal location for conferences, sporting events, trade shows and conventions.

Few beaches in South Australia have vehicle access, however great lengths of the Limestone Coast are open to 4WD vehicles. Beach driving takes you away from crowded beaches, and opens up some of the finest surf fishing and scenic beaches of the region.
