  • Visited on Saturday 22nd February, we were able to drive down to the lakes edge near the recreation area, it was great to be able to see the lake from there.  more »
  • Need to have some walking shoes , it was refreshing to see such a pristine area. You can just soak in the views  more »

  • Valley Lake is located in Mount Gambier, South Australia. Mount Gambier is roughly 5.5 hours drive away from Melbourne CBD (city centre). The lake is a good place for picnic with family and friends. There is a conservation area (wildlife park) located near Valley Lake (roughly 1-2 min walk). Do check out the conservation area for wild kangaroos, wallaby and koala bears. Other destinations (places of interest in Mount Gambier) includes Blue Lake and Umpherston Sinkhole.
  • My favourite activity in Mt Gambier is to hike the 12-15 km loop from town anticlockwise around Valley Lake , up Centenary Tower (if the flag is up to show it’s open), they around the Mutton Lake with lovely trees, and then the 3.4km around the Blue Lake. Just so fulfilling!
