Intriguing name, intriguing fossils and house-sized rocks.
Earthquakes was given its name when it was thought the house-size rocks were dislodged by earthquakes. Instead, the boulders were split away due to the land slumping many years ago.
The site has attracted many fascinated geologists over the years and makes up part of the Vanished World Trail with some fossils still visible to visitors.
To get to Earthquakes, at the north end of Duntroon turn on to Earthquakes Road. Earthquakes is signposted about 3km down the road.
Please note: Visitors should take care when exploring the area and stay on the track as sinkholes and crevasses are common in limestone formation areas.
