Princess Margaret Rose Caves camping area
Underground pools, cave coral, shawls and delicate, unpredictable helictites are just some of the memorable sights within Princess Margaret Rose Cave, one of the star attractions of the national park. A number of walking trails begin at the information centre, including one that leads to the Glenelg River gorge. Signposted on the Princes Hwy 10 km east of Mt Gambier is Princess Margaret Rose Caves Rd – the caves are 19 km from the turn-off.

This campsite is located in Lower Glenelg National Park
The centrepiece of this lush national park is the tranquil Glenelg River. Just before reaching Discovery Bay, the river washes through a spectacular limestone gorge, while the stalactites glowing in the depths of Princess Margaret Rose Cave provide more evidence of the river’s erosive powers. Besides hiking along part of the Great South West Walk, intrepid visitors can paddle across the park in canoes. To reach the river’s southern shore, take Glenelg Dr, signposted 2 km north of Nelson; for the northern shore, head south of Dartmoor on Wanwin Rd for 15 km and turn onto River Fire Line Track.
