On the Limestone Coast we have some of the most amazing natural attractions. We have pristine beaches, amazing mountains to climb and caves to either walk through or swim – that depends on how adventurous you are!
The Blue Lake is located at Mount Gambier and is one of the most iconic landmarks on the Limestone Coast. You can walk around the crater which is a 3.6km walk – nothing strenuous but a great way for the whole family to stretch their legs. There are some amazing photo opportunities on this walk.
If you are looking to push your legs a little harder, then the Mountain Trail to Centenary Tower walk which is 4.2km is worth a try. Don’t forget to pack a little granola energy snack for this one though!
I love the name of this one, the Piccaninnie Ponds Conservation Park is made up of the most amazing diving opportunities surrounded by wetlands. If you aren’t into diving – as this highlighting walking trails – there is a 2.4km walk to the outlet into the ocean with many interesting things to look at along the way.
Just down the road from the home of Fodden is the Bool Lagoon Wetlands just outside of Naracoorte. Take a stroll along one of the boardwalks, its only 1km long, but you will see an abundance of birdlife when there is water in the lagoons. If you are after a slightly longer trail, try the Gunawar walk which is 1.5km, which takes you through all the beauty a wetland has to offer and gets you nice and close to nature.
If you are wanting to wonder along the coastal edges, we have so many kilometres of coastal walks on the Limestone Coast. We are very spoilt with the choice on offer from Port MacDonnell through to Kingston SE. Robe has an amazing 12km coastal loop walk starting at Long Beach for those who are looking to test your stamina. Our coastlines are full of many different types of wildlife and spectacular views – it will be hard to know where to start.
