Perfectly located for adventure, Millicent Lakeside Caravan Park has a range of superb facilities and accommodation to suit your holiday needs. After a long day exploring the delights of the Limestone Coast, come back and relax in your very own, comfortable cabin.
Come and discover one of South Australia's most impressive caves at the Tantanoola Caves Conservation Park.
This spectacular cave, set into a cliff face, is believed to have been exposed by the constant pounding of the ocean. Over time the sea has retreated leaving behind a cavern of interesting shells, pebbles and seal bones.
Today, Tantanoola Caves comprises an extraordinary display of cave decorations (speleothems) in beautiful shades of pink and brown, coloured by its dolomite base rock. The 'Up and Down Rocks' is a special highlight.
Tantanoola is one of Australia's few wheelchair accessible caves. Upon arrival, enjoy a special hosted experience as a knowledgeable guide introduces you to the history and geology of the caves and explains how its spectacular array of formations has developed over thousands of years. You are then free to stroll through the large cavern at your leisure and take photographs.
Above ground, take advantage of the picturesque picnic grounds and the cliff top walking trail which offers panoramic views of the surrounding district.

The northern section of the park is characterised by limestone cliffs, sea stacks, offshore reefs and low dense scrub, whereas the southern section is dominated by mobile sand dunes and stretches of beach which are backed by low foredunes. Evidence of the Aboriginal Boandik people, who once lived in temporary camps along the coast, can be seen throughout the park.
The 40km coastline offers great fishing opportunities. Depending on the season and ocean conditions, mulloway, salmon, sharks or rays may tempt a bite. Try your luck off the rocks where sweep, abalone and crayfish may be caught.
Four-wheel driving is possible along the full length of the park by following the marker posts through the dunes and along Geltwood Beach.
