Umpherston Sinkhole, Mount Gambier

Once a limestone cave, Umpherston Sinkhole was created when the cave ceiling collapsed. The sunken earth proved a perfect place for growing lush greenery. Thick vines cascade over the sinkhole's edge while the center is landscaped with grasses and palms. Take a walk through the garden for an otherworldly look beneath the green curtains and between the limestone rocks.

  • Beautiful place this garden hidden in town out of time a haven of peace. Original in this ancient cave whose ceiling is collapsed, the plants are nothing extraordinary but the whole is harmonious.

  • Just on the outskirts of town, this is a place to stop. A magnificent sink hole with beautiful gardens inside. The walk down isn't far and has different levels to stop at. Lovely site to see.  more »
