The Limestone Coast is a name used for the tourism region located in the south east of South Australia which immediately adjoins the continental coastline and the Victorian border.

The Coast itself stretches south from the Coorong at the Murray River mouth and east to the Glenelg River.

Majority of the Limestone Coast is low-lying as it lay beneath the sea as recently as 2 million years ago. The plains have rows of low sandhills parallel to the coast which are due to the times when the coastline was at that level.

South Australians can now save on summer holidays in the Limestone Coast as part of a new joint Government tourism stimulus package to support the region impacted by the pandemic!

Some Features of the Limestone Coast

Much of the land between the sandhills used to be swamp before European settlement. This was fed by streams that were subject to coastal flooding. A network of drains were constructed to channel the water away through the sandhills and back to the ocean.

The Limestone Coast has an abundance of marine life and is a treasure trove of natural wonders.

There are sites of international significance including the spectacular Blue Lake at Mount Gambier which fills the crater of a dormant volcano. Additional gems include:

  • The Pool of Siloamis a salt lake which is seven times more salty than the sea! It is supposed to possess therapeutic benefits to swimmers. The pools depth does not fluctuate with the tides as it relies on soaks in the surrounding area. The high salt content in the lake makes swimming very easy, as the water is extremely buoyant!
  • The Naracoorte Cavesoffer both above and below ground experiences for visitors to enjoy and are world heritage listed. The megafauna fossils discovered here are estimated to be half a million years old.
  • The Coorong National Parkis also considered part of the Limestone Coast and is an incredible spot for exploring – off-roading, camping, fishing, boating and birdwatching.

…beautifully diverse region and has many hidden gems well worth exploring…

Explore this region on a tasting tour and drop by the fantastic cellar doors in Wrattonbully, Mount Benson or Padthaway.
