  • Amazing and surprising place, lots of animals (koalas, emus, wallabies, lots of birds..) to be spotted along the different walks. The walks are mostly easy and not too long (1hr). Very nice lady at the visitor center, and very good bush tea samples for free! The drive along the edge of the volcano is also very nice on the way out.
  • One of the most unique Caldera type volcanic crater formations in the world - Tower Hill Volcano is why the South West of Victoria enjoys some of the most fertile farming land on earth. It’s really the jewel in the crown as a a ‘must see’ and explore as it eclipses the Great Ocean Road because of its shear beauty, the flora and fauna, the craters within the crater, the lake, the walks, the bird life. It has the lot - don’t miss it on your travel radar!👍
  • It was a change I being waiting for so long after months of hard work at office, lots of sceneries plus bit of wildlife here and there. A good place for a newby trailer to try out their stamina. but if you want to see a real wildlife this might not be the case(though I saw they do have night time trailing along the reserve, so you might get lucky, but it is not without it's fair share of kangaroos, Emu, hedgehog 🦔, koala 🐨 etched..) also have to say two girls in the gift shop near the main entrance are delightful, we brought a boomerang and try it outside tee shop just to land it on the roof of the shop. Went inside again to buy a new one and they said they will give us a ladder to climb. But they couldn't find it so end up being climbing to the roof by each others shoulders. Anyway lovely people lovely place and here goes the five stars ✨ from me.
  • Beautiful place to visit and go for a walk. Check out the gift/information shop for lots of local items and beautiful pieces. Toilets and undercover picnic areas.
  • Very good but small hike. There is much to explore more than just sticking to the main path. Lots of kangaroos close to the lake
