Mount Schank

Walk into an dormant volcano! Part of the Kanawinka Global Geopark; Australia‚Äüs only internationally recognised Geopark. Lieutenant Grant named this fascinating remnant volcano at the time he named Mount Gambier. It was named after a friend, Captain Schank. There is a track which leads to the top and it is possible to descend into the crater of the dormant volcano. The walk from the carpark to the top and into the crater of the old volcano is signposted and estimated as being of moderate difficulty and should take about 2½ hours.
