Centenary Tower

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations Landmarks and Buildings

The magnificent view is worth the short, steep walk from the car park to the highest point in the area, Centenary Tower. Take a great photo of the Valley Lake and view other volcanic craters from 190 metres above sea level. On a clear day enjoy breathtaking views of the sand dunes and ocean in the distance.

The foundation stone for the tower was laid on 3 December 1900, to commemorate the 100 years since Mount Gambier was sighted and named by Lieutenant James Grant aboard HMS Lady Nelson on 3 December 2000, two plaques in the Tower car park were unveiled to commemorate the Bicentenary and the refurbishment of the Tower which is open when the flag is flying.

Enter from the roundabout John Watson Drive, Crater Lakes Precinct opposite the Blue Lake.
