Limestone Coast, South Australia

Limestone's water wonderland

Featuring 20 sites of both national and international significance, South Australia’s Limestone Coast is home to the pool of Siloam, a body of water seven times saltier than the sea, the Naracoorte Caves where megafauna fossils half a million years old are situated as well as Blue Lake, a large monolithic lake filled with bright, vibrant cobalt blue water.

The pool of Siloam is situated in the state’s south east in Beachport, and due to the high salt content is extremely buoyant, perfect for those wanting to relax in the water. Penola on the Limestone Coast is also a popular South Australian tourist destination albeit a sleepy little town, home of Australia’s first saint, Mary MacKillop.
