Kanawinka Geotrail

Kanawinka  Geotrail, a region of amazing geological diversity stretching from Colac (on the Princes Highway 200 kilometres from Melbourne) to Millicent, in south-east South Australia. 


It is Australia’s first global geopark (a global geopark is an area with at least one site of scientific significance). 

Volcanic activity is obvious throughout much of the Shire. In Port Fairy basalt boulders line the southern shoreline and have created sand fringed lagoons and bays. Many historic buildings throughout the area have been built using local basalt, which – when cut and dressed for building purposes – is called bluestone.
