This isn't a dig at your spelling, but if you have been trying to search for info, it's Mount Gambier.
Also Prince's Highway.

Wew've stayed in the Blue Lake caravan park a couple of times, very nice. I like the walk in and around Mt Shank volcano crater but it will be very hot at the moment. Umphertson sink hole at dusk is a must see if you have kids, there are dozens of possums that come out for a feed. Alos Port Macdonnell as dusk for fish and chips and to watch the fairy penguins coming ashore

Hi Chris

You need to be at the right time of year to see the main Mt Gambier lake at the vivid turquoise blue. November to March is best, as outside of this times it goes to a dull grey blue.

Between Millicent and Mt Gambier, closer to Millicent, is the Tantanoola Cave. This small dolomite cave in a limestone cliff is worth taking a tour. Dolomite caves have different structures to the usual stalagmites and stalactites. As the cave is a ground level, there are no steps to climb.

Hi

If you are looking so an interesting diversion and heading up the coast towards Robe, call into Beachprot and ask for directions to the high salt content lake (Has a name but not with me me at the moment) It is only a couple of k's behind the town, 7 times saltier than the sea, warm as it is protected from teh wind and only 6-8 ft deep. Very strange sensation to swin in (on). You can sit in the water and read a book!!Beachport is a nice place for a beer by the pier but b***y windy as all the coastal areas are.

cheers

Stayed a few times at the "Little Blue Lake" which is in the Camps 4 book, also at "Mt Schank" which is also in the Camps 4 book.
Both free camping.
Also there are others not so far away, all in the Camps 4 book.
Enjoy,
The Watto's

My recommendation is a snorkell in Ewans ponds. Cold, but interesting as far as fresh water snorkelling goes.
