4. Venture underground at Engelbrecht Cave
Beneath the streets of Mount Gambier you will be amazed what you will find. A geological wonderland awaits. Enjoy a guided tour down into Engelbrecht Cave and learn about the region’s underground water system and the history of the cave. See where qualified cave divers explore the secret tunnels and water filled passages.
Tours will run daily on the hour from 10:00am – 2:00pm during school holidays.
5. Spot koalas at the Valley Lake Conservation Park
Keep your eyes peeled as you wander through the trails in the Valley Lake Conservation Park. Hiding up above in the trees you might spot a local koala taking a nap of having a snack. That won’t be the only animal encounter you will have. The park is home to many wallaby’s, birds and wildlife. Take your time to follow the path and take in the surrounds.
The Valley Lake Conservation Park is located in the Valley Lake Precinct and is open from sunrise to sunset.
