TAKE a HIKE!
A love of the great outdoors is a common thread for residents, and they are spoilt for choice when it comes to recreational pursuits. A vast network of scenic walking and hiking trails has been established in a bid to entice people to get amongst this healthy, living landscape.
There is also a wide selection of well-maintained parks and playgrounds including the unique volcanic crater lakes precinct with its fabulous adventure playground, wildlifepark, picnic and boating facilities. Mount Gambier’s Rail Trail is a linear park breathing life into the city centre through improved physical and social engagement. Once an abandoned railway track, the 3.1-kilometre line has been repurposed into a simple shared path that serves as a popular commuter route. Free bike hire is also available from the Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre, Mount Gambier Visitor Centre, and Mount Gambier Library.
