The Weekend Australian has a photo of Bec Hopkins hanging off Kachoong on the Front Page. Apparently Arapiles is on the Great Dividing Range which is strange because I'm driving down there tomorrow and Google Maps has me doing a 1000 km trip from Sydney rather than just driving up to Blackheath. Bloody Google Maps.

I'd say that honour goes to the Grampians. So does wiki. Arapiles isn't there because of localised crust uplifting. It is there because the rock got hardened by magma intrusion underneath. There are plenty of other volcanic induced formations south and west of Arapiles including a bunch of volcanos. These are aren't part of the Great Dividing Range Either.
