  • Only 4 Stars due to the climb upto the tower which was incredibly steep. Otherwise a great location you can see the Crater Lakes as well as most of Mount Gambier. The person who lets you in the tower was extremely helpful and prices were great. For a family of four we paid $8 If your fit this is definitely a place to check out on the Limestone Coast
  • This place has some spectacular views of the local area. Make sure that you are in decent shape; it's a steep hill up to the tower and not for folks of old age or very young children (my six year old complained the whole time...and so did my ten year old).
  • Stunning place for either the sunset or sunrise. Be prepared for a very quick and very steep hike.
  • Well worth the walk up the hill. Keep an eye out for the flag on the tower, and your kids might get a free ice block :)
  • Centenary tower has amazing 360 degree views of Mt Gambier and surrounding districts. There is a car park at the bottom of the tower that looks over valley lake. There is all the information of the history of the tower and how it came to be erected where it is. The walk however is about 300 metres from the tower and is very steep to walk. If you are unfit or have a pram you might struggle. In saying that, the pathway is sealed and really wasn't any trouble to get up to the tower. Definitely worth the walk for the few though.
