About 150 km west of Geelong

is the town of Mortlake…

…which is situated in the shadows of Mount Shadwell.

Mount Shadwell is known as the Olivine

(also known as Peridot)

capital of the world.


All our volcanic cones and crater are known as mountains,

and most of them support Fire Brigade, Telecom

or other type of communications tower.

During the summer there is also

a fire spotter up there.
