THE GREAT OUTDOORS IS CALLING

by GREAT OCEAN ROAD

Experience Spectacular Natural landscapes and relaxation like never before in the calming natural surrounds of Victoria's Volcanic Lakes and Plains.

For nature lovers, there's nothing more magnificent than the evolution of the landscape over time, and through this region, the volcanic story echoes through the mounts and lakes.  The dry stone walls built by early settlers petition the paddocks where you'll see some of the most fertile pastures in Victoria.

Stretch your legs and climb up to savour the views at some of our favorite lookouts.  Once you've reached your peak, the volcanic past will unfold in the landscape right in front of you.  From volcanic craters inside the mounts, endlessly deep lakes and trails where lava once erupted through the landscape.

Climbing to a lookout for a spectacular view over the landscape is a treat - sometimes looking inside the hill is just as dramatic!
