Volcanic Plains - Camperdown, South West Victoria, Australia.

Mount Leura & Mount Sugarloaf are part of a large volcanic complex known as the Leura Maar which was formed more than 20,000 years ago by a series of major volcanic eruptions.

Since 1995, community involvement on the Reserve has resulted in major conservation and revegetation activities, including planting thousands of indigenous trees, grasses and herbs, construction of paths, information displays and shelters.

Located in the third-largest volcanic plain in the world, the summit of Mt Leura affords magnificent views of the district´s many volcanic cones. Take the time to explore the amazing natural beauty of the Reserve − you never know what you might find! 

The reserve is part of the Kanawinka Geopark.

Just a brief update to let you all know of the latest addition to the reserves. With Tania leading the way and construction help from Greg we installed the first of the nature playspace equipment late last week. It is a frame for kids to use for making into a shelter ... though kids will find other uses for sure. Over the next 6-12 months Tania will consult widely to develop an overall plan for our nature playspace. Arky.
