Mount Eccles is the site of the most recent active volcano in Australia. This erupted a few thousand years ago and the eruption is still part of folk memory of the local Aborigines.
Mount Eccles is a fairly small hill surrounded by lush vegetation with a small hidden deep volcanic lake. It is famous for an adjacent lava tunnel and the there are numerous lava tunnels in the surrounding farm land.
The local aborigines were also notable for building stone dwellings. These are rare (?unique) amongst Australian aborigines.
