No trip to Mount Gambier is complete without a visit to The Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre, featuring an ever-changing calendar of local artists exhibiting alongside works of national significance. The Riddoch holds the state’s foremost regional collection with over 1500 items, from paintings and prints depicting the people and history of the Limestone Coast to a significant collection of Aboriginal and 20th Century Australian art, featured in curated collection exhibitions throughout the year

Don’t miss the daily screening of the movie ‘Volcano‘, the story of Earth, Fire and Water. Beginning with the local Aboriginal Dreamtime story, Craitbul, this awesome big-screen adventure weaves its way through the eight major volcanic eruptions that created Mount Gambier and the Kanawinka region. If you’re here in the evening, you’re also in for a visual treat, as a stunning light display in the Cave Garden illuminates the exterior of the building with historic photos and footage giving way to a spectacular sound and light show that tells the stories of the Boandik people and their connection to local landmarks.

Oh, and parents you’ll also be glad to know there’s plenty here to capture the kids’ imagination, with a range of interactive exhibits and school holiday activities to keep your little ones entertained for hours!
