The Limestone Coast covers an area of approximately 21,310 square kilometres in

the south-eastern corner of the state of South Australia. It stretches south from the

Coorong National Park along a beautiful, rugged coastline to the Victorian border.

It also includes inland pastoral districts and the Coonawarra Wine district. The area

was named because of the underlying limestone deposits that have been used as

the foundation of many industries. It lies midway between the capital cities of

Adelaide and Melbourne and is bounded by the Southern Ocean to the west and

south, and the Victorian border to the east. Incidentally, Australia is the only nation

that recognises the Southern Ocean. To the rest of the world it is just part of the

Indian Ocean.

In June 2006, the Limestone coast region’s estimated population was 63,580 with a

median age of 36 at Mt Gambier to 44 at Kingston. The area is one of the most

productive in South Australia, with produce including wine grapes, vegetables, cereal

grains, fish & livestock. Softwood timber is also grown in plantation forests which

cover an area of approximately 100,000 hectares in total. Much of this produce and

timber is also exported. Limestone Coast summers are warm to hot with mainly dry

conditions and winters are crisp and wet. Sunland Holiday Village and the nudist

beach at Lurline Point is situated right on the coast midway between the fishing

towns of Robe and Beachport.

The natural attractions of the region include World Heritage caves, coastal dunes,

lagoons and lakes, both fresh and salt-water. The Coorong and Canunda National

Parks occupy vast stretches of the coast and cater for camping, fishing, four-wheel

driving and of course quiet observation of the local flora and fauna. Lovers of

seafood, such as lobster, will delight in local catches that can be purchased at Robe

or Beachport.
