With more than 400 volcanos these are the third largest volcanic plains in the world.
Located just over 2hrs from Melbourne, the Volcanic Lakes and Plains region is a slightly hidden gem, a little off the Great Ocean Road.
The unique volcanic landscape in south-western Victoria was most likely formed from about two million years ago when lava flowed from many vents. This filled the valleys and created plains with lakes, wetlands and stunning waterfalls from Melbourne to Mount Gambier.
Experience Spectacular Natural landscapes and relaxation like never before in the calming natural surrounds of Victoria's Volcanic Lakes and Plains.
