The sinkhole and surrounds were beautiful, loved the information found on signs around the area. Very interesting to see the bee activity within the sinkhole. Gardens were well maintained.

First time ever in such a naturalky forming phenomena. Truly a tourist 'must go to'. And only minutes from town. Easy step access, with viewing platforms, you descend into beautifully kept tiered, colourful gardens.

This place is really interesting and the story behind it as well. I recommend having a look if you go to Mount Gambier. It's a beautiful walk through the Sinkhole.

This is a nice place to visit, it’s cool to learn how and why it’s there and it’s history, worth a visit but for myself it wasn’t anything crazy, nice gardens and a nice place to picnic, glad I went to see it

No, what i think you are talking about is a display on the outside of the building overlooking what the locals call The Cave Gardens. It shows nightly, but is not really a sound and light show, more of a movie clip.

Oh and the Beachport Jetty and Paintball skirmish. Awesome fun and adrenaline rush. Lastly there is the fairy penguin lookout and soft cliff faces with hidden caves underground. You'll wish you had more than just a few days... More
