Mt Leura & Mt Sugarloaf Reserves Mt Leura & Mt Sugarloaf Management Committee, Corangamite Shire, Camperdown, Victoria, Australia

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!

Friends of Mt Leura Inc

Great news ... the Volcanic Education Centre (VEC) at the base of Mt Leura is now connected to solar power. Thanks to the Management Committee who have paid for the installation, Adam Merrick who donated 2 days to do the installation and Garth Wesson who donated the panels we were able to turn on the lights at 7.00pm last evening. The inverter also gives us access to using other facilities. This is a fantastic addition to the VEC!!!!!! Some photos attached. Arky. ... See MoreSee Less
