Geotours will carry you into a volcanic crater, past an island of Dreamtime stories, and on to a desolate estuary, introduce you to wildlife, Aboriginal culture and stories written in stone.
Tower Hill is one of the world’s largest maar volcanoes. A maar volcanic crater forms by massive explosion of rock when hot lava enters the water table. This happened at Tower Hill 35,000 years ago, spreading clouds of ash and rock fragments as far as Warrnambool. Today emus, koalas, kangaroos and birds have made the crater their home. Deen Maar is the Gunditjmara name for Lady Julia Percy Island. Formed on the seafloor some seven million years ago, it is Australia’s only offshore volcano. Today it is home to thousands of seals, penguins and birds. Further west Yambuk Lake meets the ocean, a truly stunning estuary. Here the cliffs tell the story of past sea levels and man’s occupation.Family Friendly Non Smoking Public Toilet
