Sinkholes pop up without a moment’s notice swallowing anything on the ground above them. They are truly one of nature’s most incredible disasters. When Charlie from Budget Motels told us about some of the most beautiful sinkholes here in Australia, it was worth investigating.

South Australia is home to one of the most beautiful sinkholes. Umpherston Sinkhole is located in the Mount Gambier region and was once a typical limestone cave formed by the corrosion of the rocks. The sinkhole was created when the chamber’s roof collapsed.

It is now a sunken garden where visitors can witness the untouched beauty of nature.

Deb from Budget Motels shared her story about sinkholes that go unnoticed by tourists and locals.

Another sinkhole located in South Australia is famous for its beautiful, clear, fresh water making it a famed destination for divers. Kilby Sinkhole is gorgeous and offers deep caverns for divers. To many divers, this is one of the best dive sites in the world because of its beautiful, clear water.

With so many unique destinations in South Australia, you’ll need affordable accommodation. There’s a Budget Motel available around every corner allowing you to make memories of a lifetime. You may even learn a thing or two from one of our adventurous hosts!

Did you know:  There are two types of sinkholes.  One forms when the roof of the cave collapses, and the other is when water erodes the soil and creates an underground chasm.
