Volcanic lava along the Breamlea shoreline

Did you know the black rocks along the water line around the Barwon Heads Bluff and near Breamlea are actually volcanic lava from the inland (now extinct) Mt Duneed volcano?

Mt Duneed is a small hill in the south of Geelong, Victoria, a ten minute drive from Breamlea. The name derives from the Gaelic word for a circular mound.

What’s left of the volcano’s crater is located at the Mount Duneed Recreation Reserve. It is the highest point in the area.

Lava from the Mt Duneed volcano flowed towards the Barwon Coast, this is the hard, black basalt we see today at Black Rock and at the base of the Bluff.

Basalt is a volcanic rock that forms when the molten lava cools rapidly as it is suddenly exposed at the surface of the planet.

This is a tangible reminder of the regions volcanic past and contributes to its rich geological heritage and located just minutes from the Breamlea Caravan Park and the Barwon Heads Caravan Parks.

Great place. We had a really lovely time there. Brilliant access to Stingray Bay/ Buckley's Bay and Bancoora Beach. The staff was excellent. VERY well managed and maintained. We'll be back!

Nice little caravan park if you just want to relax. Away from the hustle and bustle (this can be good or bad depending on your trip)

What a lovely quiet caravan park so perfectly positioned. The beach on your doorstep and a fabulous wetland at the gate. Away from the rat race but an easy short drive to all you could need.

A great little caravan park in the quiet hamlet of Breamlea. Generous sites with access to power and water (although you may need 20m+ of hose and power lead). Amenities are well looked after and cleaned twice each day. Highly recommend sites 200 & 201 for a pair of cans as they have a sheltered picnic table between them. Camp kitchen does not have cooking facilities but there is a BBQ nearby.
