The city is located on the slopes of Mount Gambier (volcano) in the south-east of the state, about 450 kilometres south-east of the capital Adelaide and just 17 kilometres from the Victorian border, it is the most important settlement in the Limestone Coast region.
Mount Gambier is a major regional centre and is driven by tourism, hospitality, retail, professional services, government administration and education. The city’s historic primary industry roots including mining, agriculture and forestry, which continue to play a key role. Mount Gambier is also a major road transport and trucking centre.
The Mount’s main catchment is the Blue Lake, the volcano lake is both a tourist attraction and the city’s main reservoir and the city’s water supply is provided by South East Catchment Water Management Board. Aside from this surface water catchment, the community is largely dependent on groundwater for commercial and industrial operations in the region.
Water is no longer the freely available commodity that has been in the past and the community will need to have a stronger focus on harvesting and storing high-quality water in order to meet demand in the future.
