Declared Victoria’s first National Park in 1892, Tower Hill is the ideal place for visitors to experience the Australian bush, enjoy magnificent scenery and landscapes while getting up close & personal with some of Australia’s most iconic native birds and animals including emus, koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, black swans, wedge-tail eagles, magpie geese and seasonal reptiles.The Reserve sits inside a dormant volcano and its plethora of wildlife provides visitors with the rare opportunity to witness animals at close range in their natural habitat. This, combined with guided tours to learn about wildlife, environmental conservation and sustainability and local history provide a truly unique eco-tourism experience. A site of ecological and geological significance and a showcase for indigenous history, Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve is open the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with guided tours available everyday on demand. Within its spectacular 11km crater rim, the volcanic cones rise from a lake bed in a formation known as a nested maar, which occurred as a result of the volcanic dome collapsing on itself due to weight. A close proximity to The Twelve Apostles, The Grampians and Port Campbell National Parks as well as a number of other factors, makes Tower Hill a must see for tourists seeking nature based & cultural interpretation experiences, or groups with an interest in environmental studies:• Landscape & Scenic values recognised by the local and wider community listed by the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) and the Register of National Estate. • Geological values rated as nationally significant (nested maar).• Habitat values including remnants and wetlands. • Cultural and social values related to the major re-vegetation program involving thousands of volunteers (the first of its kind in Victoria).• Informal recreation, education, research and wildlife viewing opportunities for domestic & international visitors.• Aboriginal heritage values including several significant sites, as well as Post European contact heritage values. « less
