The city and district has many dry limestone caves, (some of which are actually beneath the city), as well as numerous wet caves and sinkholes which are renown worldwide amongst the cave diving fraternity. Some of these caves were used in the 3D film "Sanctum".
To the North is historic Penola and the world-famous vignerons of Coonawarra.
To the South is Port MacDonnell, Australia's Southern Rock Lobster capital.
To the East is Piccanninie Ponds and the peaceful Glenelg River plus the port of Portland and beautiful Bridgewater Bay.
