Red-hot molten rock spews high into the air from a large volcano, the black river of cooling lava taking all in its path as it flows towards you. The earth is evolving before your very eyes in high drama.

This was the scene about 8,000 years ago around Byaduk and Branxholme. You may have missed one of Australia’s most recent volcanic eruptions but the fascinating evolution of the area is still taking place every day and is there for you to enjoy.

The Byaduk caves were formed by the lava flow cooling, with molten rock pouring out, leaving a series of what is known as lava tubes.

Further south you will find the rather odd and strangely shaped tumuli formed along the lava flow.

In the small town of Byaduk you will find one of the most picturesque cricket ovals you are ever likely to see. During the summer months, park yourself under one of the large shady trees and enjoy the sights and sounds of this unusual but addictive game.

Not far from Byaduk you will find Branxholme, a perfect town to take a breather underneath one of the large shady trees by the highway. This attractive area was designed as a commemoration to those who fought and died in the First World War.
