Mount Gambier has a Domestic airport located just north of the town, and regular flights are operated by Regional Express (Rex) Airlines and O`Connor Airlines from Adelaide to Melbourne.
The closest International airport is located in either Adelaide or Melbourne.

Mount Gambier Airport Mount Gambier, a volcanic complex of maar volcanoes, formed about 4,900 years ago making it the youngest group of volcanoes on the continent of Australia. This photo shows Blue Lake Crater, a maar volcano. The Airport is located 8.5km from the town centre.

The South-east of South Australia is noted for the limestone caves and sink-holes which form the sub-structure. In Mount Gambier there are several, easily accessible examples of caves. The easiest to find is Cave Gardens, right in the centre of town in the park opposite the Post Office. This scenic area has been landscaped around the main cave which was the site of early development in the town after the Henty brothers arrived in 1841. It was at one time the water supply for the town and windlasses were used to draw water from the base. In the 1890's a beautification scheme saw the beginnings of the gardens, and in 1909 the rose-gardens were planted. The fountain in the park was constructed in 1884.

Umpherston Cave, just east of the city on the Princes Highway, is named after James Umpherston, who arrived in 1860, and was a foundation member of the Show Society and lived on a property nearby. An interesting display on the steps leading into the cave explains its colourful history, and a Mack logging truck and an old bull-dozer are among logging displays in the beautiful gardens surrounding it.
