Details: After a canoe trip along the Glenelg River for NYE, we popped over the border to South Australia and explored some of the famous spring fed creeks and caves south of Mt Gambier.

The first on the list was a site i’d never dived before – 8 Mile Creek. This creek is fed by a spring that runs out of Ewens Ponds and you can actually do a drift all the way from Ewens Ponds to the ocean. This would be a long way though, and i got dropped off about 1km inland from the ocean and drifted back to the sea. The vegetation was extremely beautiful with some purple water plants that i didn’t see in Ewens Ponds. At a few drains that flowed into the creek, bream and mullet could be seen feeding. Swans, swamphens and comorants fed on the creek also, but took flight when approached. This was a really unique drift snorkel in crystal clear water.
