The most remarkable and / interesting part of this Mountain is its Crater, which, from its immense size and great depth, denotes that a / volcanic eruption of considerable magnitude must have taken place at some period in the past. Looking down / from the summit, the large gum trees growing at the bottom of the Crater appear but small saplings.
