Located within the Limestone Coast zone, in the South-East of South Australia, the Mount Gambier region has been established as a viticultural region since 1982. As a strong agriculture area of South Australia, the area is also known for its cropping, grazing and forestry.
The landscape of the Mount Gambier region is dominated by a number of physical features. The town, Mount Gambier sits on a coastal plain, underlain by limestone with relic beach dune systems illustrating the advance and retreat of sea level during the last Ice Ages.
Volcanic activity in relatively recent times in the South of the region, saw the development of volcanic cones and craters, within which sits the jewel of the Blue Lake, an iconic feature of the region.
