Carpenter Rocks is situated on the coastline, 37 kilometres west of Mount Gambier on the Limestone Coast.
It has a beautiful bay, which provides a safe haven for the many fishing boats moored there.
Cape Banks Lighthouse sits approximately four kilometres from the town and is the area where the Admella was wrecked in 1859, resulting in the loss of 84 lives.
Also nearby are Canunda National Park and Lake Bonney. The lake is ideal for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, skiing, boating and fishing.
