Umperston Sinkhole Mar 18, 2011
Mount Gambier is 460km south-east of Adelaide South Australia and 450km west of Melbourne Victoria Australia. If you are in the area it is well worth stopping in to see the Umpherston sinkhole also known as the Sunken Garden, it was once a cave formed through the dissolution of limestone. The shinkhole was created when the top of the chamber collapsed down. Originally beautified by James Umpherston around 1886, the sinkhole is open at all times. A large undercover free barbecue is provided with seating up to 50 people.

The gardens are amazing you can walk down into them and sit and take in the tranquillity. This is a truly unique place and you will be pleased you took the time to visit.
