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!

4 PEAKS CHALLENGE REPORT ... what a fabulous day was had by all 43 signed up participants .. plus a few extra .. who met at the base of Mt Leura at 9.45am for what will become an annual event for the Friends of Mt Leura. We would like to thanks all those who participated whether they conquered all four peaks or just the ones they had the time or energy to conquer. Some came long distances .... some came training for the Kokoda Track .... for many it was their first visit to at least one of our chosen peaks.
The sun eventually came out early afternoon but it was perfect walking weather all day.
Finally our thanks to Val and Chris Lang for opening up Mt Elephant early for us.
I have included a few photos from the day.
Graham Arkinstall on behalf of the organising team ... thanks Fran, John, Becky and Belinda

Thanks to all involved. It was a great day. I know I will feel it tomorrow.

Fantastic event idea, was sorry to miss this one but will be there next year!

I did Leura & Sugar Loaf yesterday looking for birdies as usual, I bet there were none in sight today lol

Hope you had fun.
