Guided Dive - Ewens Ponds

From AUD $135.00
  • Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
  • Product code: DE-EWENS

Ewens Ponds are a world-famous SCUBA diving and snorkelling location with a gentle flow of crystal clear waters leading to Eight-Mile Creek, and two swim-throughs that fizz with bubbling plants as they photosynthesize underwater. Drifting lazily through tunnels of plants and an abundance of life in the country’s most diverse freshwater dive site is invigorating and acts as a great warm-up before a dive at Kilsby sinkhole.

Ewens Ponds allows divers to fully appreciate the crystal clear fresh temperate waters that Mount Gambier is famous for. With easy access to the first pond from the carpark, your Dive Experience guide can easily help you adjust equipment before your dive begins. 

Parking is sometimes at a premium at the ponds, however Dive Experience will always try to park our trailer on the grassy area beside the information stand - if you arrive before the trailer does then simply park wherever you can and we will meet you.


Ewens Ponds is a National Conservation Park, so please do not bring pets and all rubbish must be taken away (no rubbish bins on-site). There is only a stinky drop toilet on-site, so consider using the toilet before heading to Ewens Ponds to meet your Dive Experience guide.
