Over the next 20 years Mount Elephant will be a landmark in the district for a wilderness experience and will be a centre for learning about the natural heritage of the district.

Mount Elephant is a perfect breached scoria cone that erupted maybe 180,000 years ago. It is part of a suite of volcanos on the basalt plains of south west Victoria from 30,000 to several million years old. 


Located 1 kilometre west of the township of Derrinallum, on the Hamilton Highway.

It is an easy one-hour drive from major regional centres of Geelong, Ballarat, Warrnambool and Hamilton, and a comfortable two-hour drive from Melbourne.

The Mount Elephant Community Management Inc. is a volunteer organisation of elected members from the local community, Trust For Nature and local Indigenous Groups.
