Umpherston Sinkhole/Balumbul

Limestone Coast

The beauty of the Umpherston Sinkhole/Balumbul has to be seen to be believed. 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. A large undercover shelter with group seating and free barbecue is provided. The kiosk on site offers coffee, snacks, ice creams and souvenirs.

Umpherston Sinkhole/Balumbul, also known, as the sunken garden was once a cave formed through dissolution of the limestone. The sinkhole was created when the top of the chamber collapsed downwards. Now the topsoil down on the floor forms the perfect environment for the sunken garden.

The geological processes that have created the sinkholes in the region inspired the sculpture at Umpherston Sinkhole/Balumbul.
