Stories of the Landscape – Kanawinka Geotrail, South West Victoria

Australia may be referred to as a relatively young nation, but the well preserved ancient landscape provides many precious windows into the past. 

The Kanawinka Geopark’s, meaning Land of Tomorrow from the Buandik people, is a spectacular and intriguing volcanic landscape covering South West Victoria through to East South Australia enabling visitors to travel back in time thousands and thousands of years. The surface geology  is a striking contrast of sweeping plains and spectacular cones which are largely the product of volcanic activity. In fact, with six sites of international significance and 14 of national significance, this area is Australia’s most extensive volcanic province.  The Kanawinka Geopark was declared the 57th Member of the Global Network of National Geoparks assisted by UNESCO on June 22, 2008.
