Big Nature

Kanawinka Geo Trail

Follow meandering roads north from the coast to explore sublime volcanic landscapes and charming inland towns.

Enjoy the contrast of conical peaks and deep crater lakes that punctuate the event carpet of rolling farmland.

Dry Stone walls dissect the landscape, an aesthetic and practical solution to farm a landscape strewn with scoria. Charming towns with well preserved buildings and tended avenues of elm, oak and plane provide visions of England on volcanic plain.

The volcanic plain is the largest in Australia and the third largest in the world.

Views from Mt Leura (Camperdown), Mt Noorat (Terang) or Mt Elephant (Derrinallum) on a still winter’s morning reveal a tapestry of green pasture and deep crystal pools. The reflection of still water in every direction revealing a quicksilver trail to distant volcanic peaks.
