Mount Gambier is nestled in a picturesque volcanic landscape surrounded by vast pine tree plantations, with plenty of scenic spots to explore and enjoy.
Sitting at the top of the list of Mount Gambier attractions is the beautiful Blue Lake. With its ever changing water colour in the various seasons, the lake water turns a dense blue in November to a grey colour in April. Easter is the perfect time to visit as the lake should still have its extraordinary blue colour if the weather is fine, so why not take a stroll around the lake on the walking track?
Other Mount Gambier tourist attractions include a number of other lakes; including the Valley Lake, the Little Blue Lake and other smaller lakes dotted around the volcanic area.
Other popular choices for visitors to Mount Gambier are the Cave Gardens and Umpherston Sink Hole. Both are great places for families to enjoy a picnic and to spend time in the stunning gardens. Both are fun places to hide a few Easter eggs for the kids to find. For the more energetic, you can also climb to the top of Centenary Tower and get the best scenic views of the surrounding city and volcanic landscape.
Local events over Easter in the Limestone Coast region include the Mil Lel Easter run, the Kingston offshore fishing competition and Easter fete and Beachport Easter Market. Don't be surprised if you see a few Alfa Romeos out and about on the roads of the Limestone Coast over Easter as the Alfa Romeo Club have their annual meet here this weekend.
