The Sound and Light Show runs nightly in the Cave Gardens, Mount Gambier. The show tells visitors about the Aboriginal Dreamtime of the Cave Gardens.

Looking down into the sinkhole during the show, you will see that coloured light originates from the cave and projects shadow-like images onto the cave walls. The images move across the rock face and are accompanied by a mystical and ethereal soundscape. The calmness of the Cave Gardens will add to your experience, and viewing these stories unfold in a natural setting is a unique way to learn about the Aboriginal Dreamtime.
At 7:30pm every night, there is a prelude with the rear wall of The Riddoch Arts & Cultural Centre coming alive with photos and footage highlighting Mount Gambier’s European heritage and history. This historical presentation is replaced with curated animations and projection art during special events.
Please note: there is no sound during this part of the presentation. The prelude plays continuously on a loop until the Dreamtime stories begin.
At 8:30pm every night, a spectacular sound and light show tells the Dreamtime stories of our Boandik Peoples and their connection to the Cave Garden/Thugi and the Blue Lake/Warwar.
Please note: the Dreamtime stories play twice before reverting back to the prelude, which plays until 11pm. The show is not weather dependent and runs rain, hail or shine. Warm clothing is recommended during cooler months.
The cave gardens are easy to access from the town centre. Beautiful rose gardens surround them and provide ample photo opportunities for photographers.
So, if you are on vacation in the Mount Gambier region and are near the town centre, you should think about taking a little trip to the cave gardens to witness this light and sound show.
