Leven River winding through the canyon.
The Leven Canyon has long been a great place for day
visitors, with walking tracks and picnic areas.
lookout platform offers panoramic views of the surrounding
countryside. Dominating the skyline is Black Bluff Mountain
(1,349 m). The Black range runs north south with the
dramatic bluff on the northern end.
Standing on the platform you feel inspired by the dramatic
cliff formation of the canyon and the sheer ridge opposite
the lookout and to the north the waters of Bass Strait.
Thousands of years ago a landslip from the sheer ridge
opposite the lookout, fell and blocked the flow of the
river. This can easily be seen from the road near the start
of the Canyon Floor Walk. This caused the valley of Loongana
to fill, forming a lake.
Picnic area dominated by tree ferns
and towering gums.
