Rising 150 metres above the cultivated plains, Mount Scoria is a striking local landmark. Formed by volcanic activity 20-26 million years ago, this volcanic plug features many-sided basalt columns. Mount Scoria is the only mountain like it in Australia.

From this short cultural trail in Mount Scoria Conservation Park walkers get a good view of the unusual columns. Interpretive signs explain the significance of the mountain to the Gangulu people and describe how the landscape formed.
