This is the first in a series of videos I am making about the volcanic sites of Victoria and South Australia.
There are over 400 volcano sites in western Victoria and south east South Australia, many are extinct but there are still quite a few that only be classed as dormant because, in geological terms their eruptions were quite recent.
The Western Victorian Volcanic Plains are the third largest in the world and exceeded only by the Deccan in western India, and the Snake River Plateau in the United States (Romsey Australia).

"The geological record shows that new volcanoes in these areas have erupted perhaps every 2000 years in the past 40,000 years—and given there has not been a major eruption there for the past 5000 years, a significant eruption seems well overdue."
