MOUNT GAMBIER, SA 5290
Phone: 08 8725 4340
This is a wonderful and progressive city with a number of geographical attractions. Located in South Australia, quite a distance south of Adelaide, it is situated on the slopes of an extinct volcano with the same name. You will find a convenient Budget Rent a Car location in the Mount Gambier airport, choose the car or truck you want to move you about the area.
Being on a volcano provides most of the interesting attractions in the area, volcanic lakes, craters, and limestone and underground aquifers. The most famous of these natural wonders is the Blue Lake, this lake is in one of the three volcanic craters and provides the drinking water for the area. Interestingly the Blue Lake changes color from cool weather to warmer weather, a rarely seen event in other bodies of water. There is a reception area there where you can explore the information about the lake and surrounding volcanic area.
Another amazing geological formation is the Umpherston Sinkhole, an incredible hole created when a cave collapsed, it has a beautiful and lush garden established inside that survived the fall. This is only a short drive away in your Budget car hire, you will enjoy this very photogenic and historical spot.
Another sunken spot right in the middle of the city are the Cave Gardens, a wonderful place to stretch your legs and relax while enjoying the beautiful gardens. These gardens have historical information available on site, are well manicured and maintained by the city who also put on a light and sound show here.
One more short drive in your Budget rental car will bring you to the Engelbrecht Cave which can be toured for a small fee. There are two caverns linked together and you are able to walk a pathway and explore all the geological characteristics and see the power of the underground water. There is actually a nice alfresco café here where you can get a nice bite to eat after your trek.

Many of our locations are unable to obtain insurance for under 21 year old drivers who are therefore required, prior to the start of the rental, to present an original Insurance Certificate of Currency - not a cover note - that indemnifies the replacement value of Budget's vehicle and third party property damage up to $20 million for any one occurrence. The certificate must be issued by a reputable insurer (as opposed to a broker) and is accepted at the discretion of the prospective location with which arrangements should be made directly.
