Spring announces the commencement of next crayfishing season. In late September, the season starts with the traditional Blessing of the Fleet at Port MacDonnell. Generations of South Australian fisherman head to sea to harvest crayfish.

As summer arrives you can witness the breath-taking change of the Blue Lake/Warwar from the winter grey to the vibrant cobalt blue. Summer is full of activities of every kind from festivals and events to camping and fishing. The vibrancy of the Blue Lake/Warwar is reflected in the way of life of those in Mount Gambier. A visit in summer will always be memorable.
