Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On tour, we visited the centre and found the staff very welcoming and knowledgeable. Special shout out to Andy who told us so much about the town: the geology that creates the Blue Lake, the local forest industry etc., as well as mapping out places to visit. So nice to go to a visitor centre and talk to people who are enthusiastic and interesting. Great first impression of Mount Gambier.

Staff are very helpful here and able to answer almost every question of what is available in the immediate and surrounding regions, as well as make suggestions based on your personal interests. The ship out front as well as the discovery centre with its free entry, offers fantastic information of the history of Mount Gambier, and well worth going through. The grounds are well kept and spacious, and there is ample parking for people caravanning or with RV's.

The staff at the visitor centre couldn’t be faulted. They were generous with their time, suggestions and advice. They listened to us and gave us all the information we needed and crucially, none we didn’t need. They circled the main areas of interest on the local and regional map and gave a little information on each so when we left, we had a good idea of how long we’d expect to be in town to do what we wanted. A perfect first stop for info gathering and local maps on arrival.

We were helped by Diana who suggested all the interesting things in the area to visit.
A great map was supplied and she was very knowledgeable about the area. This is a great visitor centre with big photos behind the counter of all the main sites and attractions.

Lots of brochures to take away if required.
Diana suggested a day drip down to Port MacDonnell which was such a great idea.
She recommended a lovely cafe to eat at and a few little side trips.
So glad we popped in to visit the visitor centre.
Also recommended to us was the free 1 hour film at the art gallery in the centre of town that plays at 11am and 2pm. That is an absolute must, and so informative about the geographic creation of the area. We loved that.
