The Obelisk overlooking the Southern Ocean.

Caves, Connawara and the Coorong describe the Limestone Coast.  This southeast corner of South Australia was once covered over by the Southern Ocean.  Over the years, sediments from the ocean were deposited, and when the ocean receded what was left behind was a natural honeycomb of caves which we know as World Heritage Naracoorte Caves.  The rich soil of the Coonawarra wine district, the pristine wilderness, lagoons, and the waterways of the Coorong which support more than 200 species of birds, and a beautiful coastline were also a result of the waters receding. If you come into this area, Mount Gambier has a wonderful visitor bureau with great information.

The Big Lobster Seafood Shack is an icon of Kingston.

The Coonawarra's rich soil and limestone beds produces award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon.
 The region has about 20 cellar doors.

Looking for a great place to eat - try Petty Sessions in an old church in Kingston.  

Wildlife abounds on the Limestone Coast.

The Coorong Wilderness Lodge on Hack's Point is run by the Ngarrindjeri Aborginal people.  Here we took a bush walk with George (left) who taught us about the plants of the bush.

Wine tasting,  caving, fishing, kayaking, surfing, diving, hiking, camping and riding bicycles keep people busy on the Limestone coast.
