Mount Gambier is located midway between Adelaide and Melbourne. Visitors can get to Mount Gambier by plane from either of these cities, by car or by bus.
The Blue Lake is located in the crater of a volcanic crater and is the main source of water for the city. During the year the colour of the lake changes from an ocean grey colour to a bright irridescant blue. The Blue Lake is one of three crater lakes located on the southern edge of the city: the others are Valley Lake and Leg of Mutton Lake.
Located a short 50 kilometres north of Mount Gambier is Penola and the Coonawarra wine region. This famous wine producing region is approximately 1 kilometre wide and 17 kilometres long and is home to some of the very best red wines available.
Wine sampling is free and the cellar door staff are always friendly, well informed and passionate about the wines.
