Sinkhole diving was an unexpected find for us. While doing a house sit in Adelaide we were chatting with the home owner and he mentioned that he had grown up in the Mount Gambier region and had explored sinkholes when he was younger. He told us of some of the sites and lo and behold, there was diving to be had. As we were planning a little road trip between house sits in the region, we added Mount Gambier to our list.
This type of diving definitely isn’t like exploring coral reefs and watching fish, however it does have it’s attractions. Despite the total lack of fish and absolute minimum of plant life it is intriguing. Unfortunately it is also very equipment intensive, however I also understand the attraction of that. If you are looking to explore all avenues of diving you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t try cave/sinkhole/cenote diving.
Have a look at our short video to get another perspective. Enjoy, and thanks for reading.
