Coalstoun Lakes National Park
The park is an area of remarkable geological interest. It is the site of volcano that erupted more than 600, 000 years ago, yet it is still one of the youngest volcanic formations in Australia. Evidence of the basalt lava that flowed out from the craters is still present, in the form of the large basalt rocks along the walking track. This is known as Baranbah Basalt. The lakes were named after Coalstoun in Scotland by Wade Brun, manager of nearby Ban Ban Station.
This is a park ideal for walking, birdwatching and nature study.
