Limestone Coast

Step out of your normal routine and explore a place which abounds in natural wonders, surf beaches, wildlife, great seafood and delicious wines.

Stretching along the Southern Ocean from the world-famous Coorong National Park to the majestic Glenelg River on the Victorian border, the Limestone Coast is an expansive sweep of pristine coastline dotted with picturesque townships, immaculate vineyards, pristine beaches, dramatic headlands and national parks.

Camp, fish or 4WD around the gentle dunes and lagoons of Coorong National Park, step back in time and discover the Naracoorte Caves National Park, volcanic craters and the lakes of Mount Gambier, or soak up the relaxed atmosphere of historic seaside towns such as Robe, Beachport, Kingston S.E. and Port MacDonnell.

The Limestone Coast offers a wonderful mix of adventure, indulgence and intrigue. Join a caving expedition at a World Heritage fossil site, scuba dive among 19th century shipwrecks, visit the schoolroom where Australia’s first Catholic saint once taught or sample superb local produce – from Southern Rock lobster to Wagyu beef.

Prepare to be surprised and delighted by a region of stunning natural beauty which also offers plenty of accommodation options, a burgeoning food scene and a great range of things to see and do. Just remember that no matter how many days you spend exploring this fascinating region, you’ll always want to come back. There is always more to see.
