Experience 3 - Umpherston Sinkhole

Free

Overview

On the eastern side of Mount Gambier, set in a beautifully maintained park, is a historic Sunken Garden. This is a century old sunken garden planted on a series of terraces reflecting a bygone era.

Appreciate its size and depth from the viewing platforms at the top of the sinkhole, then, walk down into the sinkhole, along the terraces and behind the hanging vines. Have a unique experience with a picnic or barbeque in the gardens under the shelter of the caves overhang.

The area comes to life at dusk when the resident colony of possums make an appearance and enjoy being fed fresh fruit and vegetables.
