Croxton East: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Volcanoes Discovery Centre


Visit the Volcanoes Discovery Centre in Penshurst at the foot of the dormant Mt Rouse volcano, and be transported back thousands of years to when volcanoes were erupting right across the Western District and into South Australia.

At the Volcanoes Discovery Centre you will see how the surrounding volcanoes formed and shaped the landscape. See where the bluestone used in the building of the Victorian Houses of Parliament came from. Hold a volcanic bomb in your hands. The heritage listed ceiling of the original bluestone section of the Volcanoes Discovery Centre is of particular interest.

A modern conference room is available for hire.

Mt Rouse - Aboriginal name 'Collorrer' rising 120 metres above the surrounding plains - is within walking distance. From its peak there are magnificent panoramic views in all directions. A walking track takes you to the southern end of Mt Rouse and its deep, circular crater lake.

Visit at sunset to see hundreds of wallabies and kangaroos bounding across the far side of the crater.

Croxton East: Travel Tips

Dunkeld and Grampians Visitor Information Centre


At the foot of Mount Sturgeon, the southern tip of the Grampians and the Great Dividing Range you will find the booming little town of Dunkeld and the Dunkeld and Grampians Visitor Information Centre.

Dunkeld was named after a town in the Scottish Grampians and has enjoyed a stellar revival in the last 15 years.

You will find an Arboretum at the end of a pleasant walk along the small creek through town or for the more vigorous visitor, a hike up Mount Sturgeon, Mount Abrupt or the Piccaninny will provide great views of the entire Southern Grampians Range.

Dunkeld has a fascinating history documented at the Dunkeld Museum, a must visit to anyone coming to Dunkeld.

Dunkeld is quite simply spoilt with accommodation options. From the community Caravan Park to the ultra-modern eco-Lodges, traditional Bed and Breakfast to log cabins. It is no wonder more people are choosing to stay in Dunkeld as a base for a Grampians adventure.

Activities nearby include arts and crafts, birdwatching, bush walking, dining, historic sites, museums, native animal spotting, open gardens, photography, scenic drives, wine tasting, events and festivals.
