Details

Beginning about 30,000 years ago, volcanic eruptions opened the earth's crust and poured out thousands of tonnes of molten lava, forming Mount Eccles and the surrounding landscape. Geological features to be seen are extensive lava flows, lava caves, scoria cones and crater lakes.

Toilets, water (untreated natural supply), hot showers and 10 shared fireplaces are provided.

The picnic ground at Mount Eccles National Park has 2 sheltered gas barbecues with tables and an information shelter.
