Limestone Coast, South Australia - ideas needed

Jump to last reply

After much waffling, we've booked our flights to South Australia for next month.

We're flying from Perth to Adelaide where we'll pick up a rental car and drive to Naracoorte for three nights, from where we'll explore the Coonawarra wine region.

As we'll have come via Dukes and Riddoch Highways, we thought we'd work our way back towards Adelaide via the Princes Highway, making a loop..

We have a total of nine nights to work with; the first three already booked and the last three earmarked for the Adelaide Hills (I think).

It's the middle three I don't know what to do with.

There seems to be a lot to do along the Limestone Coast (widely scattered) and as we only have two full days in Naracoorte it seems we'd be giving short shrift to the area if we stopped there. So, I'm wondering if we should spent those second three nights at a second Limestone Coast location.

But can't figure out what town would make a good base from which to explore.

Robe? Kingston? Millicent? Mt Gambier?

Our interests include good food and wine, national parks, walk trails and the great outdoors.

All suggestions appreciated.
