Mount Schank Volcano–South Australia

This afternoon we arrived at Mount Schank. Mount Schank is an inactive maar volcano in the south-east of South Australia, near Mount Gambier. We will spend the night here and head to Tarpeena tomorrow.
Mount Schank last erupted 5,000 years ago, all quiet today though. A walk up to and around the rim offers a great view of the surrounding countryside.
The site is accessible from the Mount Gambier-Port MacDonnell road about 20 km (12 mi) south of Mount Gambier; there is a small carpark and picnic table, and steps have been placed to facilitate the short but very steep walk to the rim of the crater. It is a fairly simple walk to traverse the rim..
