National Trust Day: Celebrate the first direct action of its type in Australia

In February 1967 an article appears in the Vic News that marks the start of a conservation campaign for Mt Sugarloaf that would end in our purchasing of the site in 1970.

Mount Sugarloaf is part of the Mount Leura and Mount Sugarloaf Reserve and part of a large volcanic complex known as the Leura Maar which was formed more than 20,000 years ago by a series of major volcanic eruptions.

In February 1967 an article appears in the Vic News that marks the start of a conservation campaign for Mt Sugarloaf that would end in our purchasing of the site in 1970. This community led, National Trust supported campaign would see protectors lying in front of bulldozers and is the first direct action of its type in Australia.

Located in the third largest volcanic plain in the world, the summit of Mt Leura has a clear view of Mount Sugarloaf and affords magnificent views of the district’s many other volcanic cones.
