TOURISM INDUSTRY

City of Mount Gambier

Tourism makes a significant contribution to Mount Gambier's economy, generating over $100 million in annual expenditure and equating to the creation of numerous jobs. Those both directly and indirectly involved in tourism have the capacity to benefit economically from this industry.

The City of Mount Gambier acknowledged the importance of tourism to the local economy many years ago and has planned and invested heavily in the community infrastructure to provide a platform which encourages the ongoing development of tourism based businesses. Such facilities include Crater Lakes Complex and Recreational Areas, Umpherston Sinkhole, Engelbrecht Cave, Centenary Tower, Cave Garden, the many playgrounds, parks and gardens as well as "The Lady Nelson" Visitor and Discovery Centre.

Apart from the infrastructure investment council has been a significant contributor to the Local and Regional Tourism organisations in a financial capacity, participation as board members and other in-kind support.
