Set in the heart of Mount Gambier, the cave gardens are well worth a look with lots of nearby places to eat and shop nearby.

We have been there when passing GOR. Worth visiting. It takes nearly 15 min so go there to enjoy green views.

Lovely tranquil spot that is well maintained. Shame that someone saw it fitting to blot the view with a dumped bicycle. I am sure the owner would love to get it back.

Mother Nature is wonderful. Impressive in winter, can not wait to see it in spring, summer and autumn.

Also keep in mind even if it's raining, still worth stopping for a look as the small waterfall might be running.
