The lake changes from a dark steel grey colour to a brilliant turquoise in November for the entire summer.

Here, the Umpherston Sinkhole has to be seen to be believed! Appreciate the size & depth of this amazing sinkhole from the viewing platforms before enjoying a light lunch in the gardens.

During the cruise, enjoy the wonderful beauty of the untouched waterways through the wilderness.

★ After our cruise, we tour to Port MacDonnell on the coast.

This old crayfishing hamlet has a Maritime Museum featuring artifacts salvaged from the shipwrecks on the coast. The old lighthouse from the past still remains on the rocky shore. There may be time to visit the Old Hotel before we return back to our accommodation in Mount Gambier for dinner.
