The Cathedral Range is a mountain range that is part of the Great Dividing Range in Victoria, Australia, located in Cathedral Range State Park. The range is formed from a 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) ridge of upturned sedimentary rock, consisting mainly of sandstone, mudstone and conglomerates of the Devonian Period. This has given the range steep sides, and a narrow razorback ridge. The plateau on the eastern boundary of the park continues to the nearby Lake Mountain cross country ski area. Much of the park was burnt in the Black Saturday bushfires.
