Located 439 km south east of Adelaide, Mount Gambier is the jewel of South Australia's south-eastern region. It is a large rural centre (population over 24,000) which is characterised by a large number of attractive, historic buildings and the major attraction of the Blue Lake.
Mount Gambier is sustained by a range of industries. There is a very active timber industry sustained by plantations of radiata pine, the surrounding area is noted for sheep and cattle raising and the soil is rich enough for both grain crops and vegetables to be grown.
