The Anakies

This is a complex of three scoria cones and a possible maar.  From a distance it appears as a group of prominent hills between the You Yangs and the Brisbane Ranges.  Mount Rd runs between the most northwest cone and the maar and is a good way to observe many of the features. Alternatively, you can visit Del Rios vineyard on the southern slopes of the main cone and after a drink at the cafe ask about access.  The Lovely Banks monocline runs south from here to Geelong as a linear bank.  It is not known if this feature is related to the volcanoes.
