|Fascinating island to the west of Port Fairy. Australia’s only submarine volcano, the lava flows have created an unusual flat top and almost vertical cliffs surround the island. Home to the largest fur seal colony in the southern hemisphere - you are able to book a boat trip from the wharf (subject to weather).|
|There are over 50 buildings of significance and the best way to appreciate this legacy is on foot. Walking guides are available at the Visitor Centre.|
|Battery Hill and the Powder Magazine|
|The hill first served as the Garbour Master’s signal point for shipping. Local militia units established the gun batteries and built the concrete fortifications that were completed in 1857. The collection of such weapons is exceptional. The bluestone powder magazine was built in 1860 to store explosives used in construction of the river wall.|
