Found in the heart of South-Western Victoria’s volcanic region stretching from Portland to the Grampians, Mount Eccles is located within 10-minutes drive of Macarthur. The volcanic mar of Mount Eccles has become flooded in by Lake Surprise but the vent has created canals which surround the main scoria cone on opposite ends. Within these canals can be found tunnels and caves left behind by the cooled, molten flow. Best visited in the cooler months of year, it’s advisable to bring ankle high, hiking boots due to long grass and a rocky surface.
