Newer Volanic Cone at 'Killeen"Killleen Volcano

  Creightons Creek has evidence of volcanic activitity similar to the Gooram Valley . If you drive along the Longwood- Mansfield Road between the  Creightons Creek Rd and Ruffy Rd , you will notice a perfectly  cone-shaped  hill on your left, in the historic property ‘Killeen’ . 

This is an outcrop of  ‘Killeen Basalt”  (Qvn2) part of the Victorian newer volcanics. The surrounding geology is our usual granite.  Unfortunately the hill retains  little remnant vegetation , the early squatters who  took up the Killeen Run  made full use of  the fertile volcanic soil for cropping and pasture.
