Valley Lake & Centenary Tower

Valley lake

Valley Lake & Centenary Tower, drive down into the Valley Lake area and enjoy the free Wildlife Conservation Park, with koalas and kangaroos. Children will love the Adventure Playground. Free barbecues available. Bring a picnic, feed the ducks, and discover Brownes Lake. This was the site of Mount Gambier's original botanic gardens and the area is picturesque all year round, but especially in Autumn. Free Entry.

The magnificent view is worth the short, steep walk from the car park to the highest point in the area, Centenary Tower, take a great photo of the Valley Lake and view other volcanic craters. On a clear day enjoy breathtaking views of the sand dunes and ocean in the distance. Tower open when the flag is flying from the top, climb to the top of the tower for an even better view. Fee applies. Enter from the roundabout John Watson Drive, Crater Lakes Precinct opposite the Blue Lake.
