Mount Napier is the youngest volcano in the state of Victoria and last erupted 10,000 years ago, creating the magnificent state park around its base. A major attraction in the park are the Byaduk Caves. The caves were created when lava from Mount Napier solidified on top, and molten lava continued to flow underneath the surface. Today, one of the caves can be explored by visitors to the Grampians Region. The largest of the Byaduk Caves measure 18 metres wide, 20 metres deep and 10 metres high.

If planning o visit the Byaduk Caves, visitors should wear runners or hiking shoes, as the ground can get slippery. Make sure to bring a torch to explore the cave, but ensure you do not shine your torch on the bats inside the cave, as this can disturb their hibernation during the winter months.
