Mount Franklin Reserve

Known as Lalgambook by the Djadja Wurrung people, Mt Franklin is a small volcanic crater that offers ideal place for a picnic or basic camping set amongst huge conifers and deciduous trees. Mount Franklin is a fine example of a breached scoria cone. The breach, through which the road now enters the crater, is thought to have been caused by a flow of lava breaking through the crater rim. Lava from Mount Franklin and other volcanoes in the area filled valleys and buried the goldbearing streams that became the renowned ‘deep leads’ of the gold mining era.

You can camp for short stays at Mt Franklin which is also suitable for caravans and motor homes on a first come first served basis. No fees apply. Toilets, fireplaces and washing water are provided.
