Engelbrecht Cave

Underneath the Jubilee Highway, which runs through Mount Gambier, is the Engelbrecht Cave. We had decided to stop off in Mount Gambier on our way from Kingston S.E. to Portland in Victoria and pulled up at the Engelbrecht Cave just in time to catch a tour into the East and West caverns. It turned out we were the only two taking the tour for that hour and so we headed into the cave with our personal tour guide. The cave is a completely dry cave so there are no stalagmites or stalactites present, just an underground lake with incredibly clear water. The tour lasted an hour and included the cave’s history (it was used as the local dump for sometime), geological information and a bit about cave diving. As we were only having a quick stop in Mount Gambier we were unable to visit any of the other caves or sinkholes in the town and instead headed to another of Mount Gambier’s main sights; the Blue Lake.
