A project to create awareness of an area that has not been widely promoted to visitors in the past is about to launch.
The Volcanic Lakes and Plains stretch from Beeac in the east, through to Tower Hill and Budj Bim in the west, and as far north as Mortlake, Penshurst and Lake Bolac. This region is dotted with family-run businesses based in small country communities. Nestled between the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians, the region is one many of us have travelled through without realising just how much there is to see and do.
The Volcanic Lakes and Plains project has been driven by industry and community representatives from northern towns of the Corangamite Shire.
Corangamite Shire and Great Ocean Road Regional Tourism have been promoting the area since then and have collaborated with neighbouring shires to recognise locations in Colac Otway, Ararat, Southern Grampians and Moyne Shires as part of the Volcanic Lakes and Plains.
