Kanawinka Geopark

Yesterday the Warrnambool Standard reported that, after more than two years, UNESCO has declared an area of land from Colac to South Australia as Australia’s first Geopark. The volcanic features of the area, including Tower Hill, Mt. Eccles, Lake Condah and Camperdown’s crater lakes will be marketed as Kanawinka Geopark, which may increase tourism in the area. Geoparks are one step down from World heritage listing and are awarded to regions of geological significance which incorporate human economic development.
