Be immersed from the start.
Located just 20 minutes from Mount Gambier, your first stop will have you immersed in the pioneer pastoralist era. The beautiful Glencoe Woolshed will take you back through the significant history of agriculture within the region, with untouched artifacts of the wool industry on display.
It’s always the back roads that make the most exciting memories.
On your way to Millicent, detour to take the Woakwine Range Wind Farm Tourist Drive. Be astonished by the powerful giant turbines as they dominate the skyline.
Connected to Millicent Visitor Information Centre, the Millicent National Trust Museum will take you back in time. With an extensive collection of clothing and antique machinery, you may spend longer than you think! While you’re in town, stop and enjoy some lunch at one of the local cafes. Alternatively, prepack a picnic with local produce and enjoy it at your next stop.
Spend your afternoon in nature.
Start off with a visit to Lake McIntyre Reserve. This is a bird lover’s paradise, with over 50 different species. Stroll along the beautiful walking trail, viewing birds from the hides along the way.
Complete your trip.
If you have a 4WD, you’re bound to have some fun at Canunda National Park! Enjoy a dip in the ocean or throw a line in and spend the afternoon fishing. Kick back and enjoy the sea breeze. Can’t get enough? Turn this day trip into an overnighter and book a campsite. Enjoy a beautiful coastal sunset and sleep under the stars.
