The Umpherston Sinkhole is far more than just a hole in the ground. It’s delightfully shady, ivy-hung depths once provided a cool retreat from the heat of the day on James Umpherston’s estate, and it is now a beautiful sunken garden with viewing platforms, sculptures and a peaceful walking trail. There’s even a resident family of possums who make an appearance at dusk to be fed by visitors. Open 24 hours a day.
