Renowned for its stunning water, many consider Eight Mile Creek to be amongst the most unique seascapes in the world.
Majority of the land in this area is used for agriculture purposes, with a portion of the coastline preserved for conservation.
Well known for its biodiversity and marine life, with one of the most popular conservation parks, Ewens Pond Conservation Park. Featuring a series of limestone sinkholes filled with water, they make up part of the Eight Mile Creek. Swimming is recommended for experienced snorklers and divers. The clarity of the waters is breathtaking and allows visitors to get up and close with the colourful marine life and the limestone cracks, which brings in cool water currents from nearby caves.
Novice swimmers are advised to swim at the second pool, which is 5 metres deep and has crystal clear views of bubbling water from its rough bottom.
Eight Mile Creek is located approximately 24 kilometres from Mount Gambier.
