Things To Do…
While you’re here for GeoVenture2020, why not see the wider region and enjoy what the South East of South Australia has to offer. Some suggestions to start your planning include:
- Tours through the Coonawarra Wine region.
- Canunda National Park, with fishing, hiking and 4WD options.
- Tantanoola Cave network and National Park.
- Lakes and natural pools of Beachport.
- Saint Mary McKillop Centre, Penola.
- Historical trails in Penola and Beachport.
- Millicent Museum.
- Sand driving on beaches and scenic coasts.
- Fishing at Beachport, Southend, Canunda and elsewhere.
- And lots of awesome GEOCACHES.
Starting South West of Millicent and running East is the Canunda National Park, which runs between Lake Bonney, S.E. and the coastline. It contains one of two dedicated 4WD tracks in the region, the other tracing a route from Beachport to Robe. Maps for both tracks can be found here.
For those who prefer exploring underground, the nearby Tantanoola Caves form part of it’s namesake National Park, and promise a exceptional caving experience, just one part of a wider network of limestone caves that the region has to offer.
