Well worth the visit. Only recently completed it is very interesting. Located at the foot of Mt Elephant just west of the town of Derrinallum. A short drive from the edge of Hamilton Highway.

There is very little at Mount Elephant apart from a stunning piece of geological history, an invigorating walk, amazing view of the surrounding countryside, an opportunity to be in the grip of nature and the quietness that goes with that, a sense of the aeons...More
