Mount Gambier Crater Lakes Trail



Enjoy walking, running or cycling through spectacular scenery set among Mount Gambier's extinct volcanic crater lakes, on the Crater Lakes Mountain Bike Trail.

Starting near the water tower on Keegan Drive, the first leg of the trail is quite adventurous, riding on a narrow track with views down steep cliffs to the bottom of the craters.

Choose between the short ride from the water tower, or the shared walking trail.

Take the designated mountain bike trail to the left, which winds past Devil's Punchbowl. Continue on this track around the bottom of the mountain veering to the right to join the walking trail again across the top of the cemetery.

Either turn left at the second punch bowl to head down off the mountain near Tenison Woods College, or turn right to continue on the walking track along the crater edge, past the Pines, finishing at the water tank near Potters Point Lookout.
