The locals joke it took 26 million years to make the Limestone Coast. Check out the sites here and you'll agree it's been time well spent!

Formed by tonnes of marine life falling to the sea floor, the Limestone Coast is book-ended by ivers. The coast heads south from the Coorong at the Murray River mouth and east to the Glenelg River. It's a treasure trove of natural wonders.

The Limestone Coast features 20 sites of international or national significance. Mount Gambier's Blue Lake fills the crater of a dormant volcano. The Pool of Siloam at Beachport is seven times saltier than the sea. The mega fauna fossils in the World Heritage Listed Naracoorte Caves are around half a million years old. The list goes on.

The traditional home of the Ngarrindjeri and Booandik people is simply bursting with experiences that have put South Australia on the international map.
There are natural wonders like the unique Coorong, the stunning Blue Lake and the World Heritage Listed Naracooorte Caves. We're proud of the famous Coonawarra wines but nowhere demonstrates the human spirit like Penola, home of Australia's first Saint, Mary MacKillop.

The Coorong National Park is an incredible spot for four wheel driving (4WD), fishing and boating. Birdwatcs, you're in for a real treat. More than 80 species live in this series of long, shallow saltwater lagoons. Towering white sand dunes separate the Coorong from the wilds of the Southern Ocean.

History is proudly celebrated on the Limestone Coast and continues to be made here. The Coonawarra is Australia's top producer of premium red wines. Cruise this 12 kilometre strip of precious terra rossa soil, then sample wine from the cellar doors in Wrattonbully, Mount Benson or Padthaway.

To help your planning, Visitor Information Centres are dotted around the region, including at Bordertown, Mount Gambier, Naracoorte, Penola and Robe.

The Limestone Coast will give you memories good enough to bottle.
