For something iconic and unusual
The Limestone Coast is located in the southeast region of South Australia and boasts many unique attractions which will most likely be of interest to you. There are lots to see in addition to the stunning coastal scenery.

At Kingston, Larry the Big Lobster stands tall near the entrance of the township. Get your cameras ready for a selfie with this iconic 17-metre tall spiny lobster. It was constructed in approximately six months and has been opened to the public since 1979, attracting thousands of tourists each year.

The Obelisk at Robe is an iconic turret painted in red and white bands. It is visible to ships from about 20 kilometres out in the sea. Standing twelve metres tall, it has assisted many captains to navigate their ships into Guichen Bay.

At Beachport, the Woakwine Cutting and Pool of Siloam are some unusual attractions to behold. You can read more about them here. And, the Lake Bonney Wind Farm at Millicent is also another unusual attraction. More about it here.

Last but not least, at Mount Gambier, the iconic Blue Lake and Umpherston Sinkhole Cave Garden are not to be missed. The Blue Lake, as its name suggests, is indeed blue in colour. There's a road and walking track which circles around the lake with a couple of lookouts for you to snap as many photos as you like. The Umpherston Sinkhole Cave Garden is just spectacular and you got to be in it to appreciate its beauty.

Last time I read an article about the Big Lobster (not on this site) it was dire need of repairs. Hopefully the Govt. allocated funds for it to be done.
