As a boy I remember it as a denuded lump of land mostly used for sheep and cattle grazing and the odd car racing or hill climbing event. Then I remember planting trees at primary school as the Government decided to make it a state park. Later my first job as a boy was picking peas in the paddocks just south of the entrance. I reckon I ate more than I picked! I still love raw peas!
For me nowadays, the geological layering of the cliffs, the view from the Koroit raad at Von Gerauds Lookout, the deep grass covered craters and the specular panoramic views from the sumit of its highest sumit are unforgetable. A barbeque and visit to the information centre are well worth a part of the trip. We recently visited with some refugees who had stayed with us from Melbourne who enjoyed the chance to see some of the local flora and fauna. Do not visit without calling in on your way to Port Fairy.
WARNING At the moment there are kangaroos and wallabys all over the place and a danger on the roads around Tower Hill and Killarney.
