Kilsby's Sinkhole is located on Sisters Road Mount Schank which is just south of Mount Gambier. It is a large, very deep sinkhole located on a working sheep farm that has a very interesting history. It has been used by the Navy to test experimental sonar buoys and by the SA Police to train police divers. This site is world renowned because of its often amazing visibility and depth. The site can be dived as deep as 70 meters (230 Ft) if you are a cave diver with Trimix certifications. After 11:00 the sun rises high enough to begin a spectacular light show that creates rays of light dancing from the surface down to 40m that has to be seen to be truly appreciated.
