One of several caves inside the sinkhole covered by vines/creepers, created by millions of years of erosion.

Umpherston Sinkhole, also known, as The Sunken Garden was once a cave formed through dissolution of the limestone. The sinkhole was created when the top of the chamber collapsed downwards. Now the topsoil down on the floor of the cave forms the perfect environment for this beautiful garden.

Mt.Gambier, South Australia
