Limestone Coast

The Limestone Coast is south-east of Adelaide, and covers the coastal area from the South Australian border with Victoria, to the Younghusband Peninsula.

There are a number of magnificent sites along the Limestone Coast, including Mount Gambier's Blue Lake which fills the crater of a dormant volcano, and the Pool of Siloam at Beachport, which is seven times saltier than the sea. The World Heritage Listed Naracoorte Caves are around half a million years old and contain megafauna fossils.

The Coorong National Park is an incredible spot for four wheel driving (4WD), fishing, boating and camping. More than 80 species of birds live in the series of long, shallow saltwater lagoons.
