The Mt Leura and Mt Sugarloaf Reserves are located on the south-east edge of the Camperdown township, approximately 2 ½ hours drive south west of Melbourne. There is road access to the top of Mt Leura from Lawrence St. to a beautiful, panoramic viewpoint.
Look out across the nested maar… see if you can spot Mount Elephant on the horizon! On a clear day The Grampians can be seen. There are several walking trails within the reserve, and Mt Leura is a great starting point from which to explore the habitat. Relax and watch the colours unfold upon the plains from the setting sun, or a sunrise for those of you who are early birds!
