Budj Bim (Mount Eccles) is a volcanic complex including an elongate spatter and scoria cone truncated on the west by a crater built by coalescence of probably three vents. The crater has steep rocky walls exposing up to 10 separate lava flows. Contained in the crater is Lake Surprise which is 800 m long and 30 m deep.

Lava flows spread radially from Mount Eccles and the younger flows were distributed along “canals” that branch from the northern end of the Lake Surprise crater. The Tyrendarra flow, the youngest flow from Mount Eccles, extends for over 50 km to the west and south. On this flow are many very well preserved original features: stony rises, lava caves and lava channels.

The Budj Bim National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed park covering the majority of the lava flow from the Budj Bim volcano (Mount Eccles) as well as multiple significant Indigenous heritage sites.
