There are a variety of things to like about Mt Gambier, I think the diversity of thing to do in this town & area. From caves, sink holes, cafes, restaurants, a variety of all accommodations, events & areas for families to enjoy. The Blue Lake & Valley Lakes would be my pick with all the natural beauty, as well as wild life & for me the running trails around the lake area are amazing.
I was always curious about how all the decisions of tourism in the area were made, when I was asked if I would like to become a member I was excited to help & always wanting to do a bit more to help our community grow & thrive. The TMG Board is not only about making the decisions for me, it’s hearing from other board members, learning from everyone’s point of view & experiences. As well as working with a great group of people hopefully some of my input can help the town move into the future.
