Mount Leura and Mount Sugarloaf

Mount Leura and Mount Sugarloaf

On a clear day the Grampians and Otway Ranges are easily picked from the mounted distance and direction marker.

Mount Leura (311m) and Mount Sugarloaf (312m) sit within the larger, older Leura Volcanic Complex which is listed on the National Trust Register of Significant Sites and is estimated to be active 30,000 years ago. The Leura Volcanic Complex is comprised of a group of scoria cones within a broad volcanic crater, or maar. Because it is a relatively young landform the features visible within it are very fresh and unaltered by erosion, so they show clearly the processes by which they were formed.

Mount Leura and Mount Sugarloaf are owned by Corangamite Shire and the National Trust (Victoria) respectively, and have been managed on behalf of the Shire by a volunteer management committee since 1995, The Friends of Mount Leura, who have since hand-planted over 100,000 indigenous trees, shrubs and grasses, re-establishing a woodland understorey.
