The gently undulating volcanic plains of western Victoria are the third largest volcanic plain in the world and are formed of lava flows up to 60 metres thick and are studded with 400 volcanoes which have been erupting over the past five million to eight thousand years ago.
You travel to Ballarat to see the ex-volcanoes of the volcanic uplands making up part of the Great Dividing Range. At Hamilton, you see impressive waterfalls and climb the last active volcano in Victoria. In the southern part of the plains you get to see many lakes, which formed after the volcanoes ceased.
Kanawinka is Australia's most extensive volcanic plains, and has been internationally recognised and is one of the most significant and largest volcanic provinces in the world. The plain stretches across South Western Victoria and South East South Australia. The Kanawinka region gets its name from the geological fault that stretches from Portland (Victoria) to Naracoorte (South Australia). Kanawinka is an Aboriginal term meaning "Land of Tomorrow".
