We acknowledge the late Bruce Chappell for providing unpublished whole-rock analyses, Jim O'Neil and Bill Compston for providing some O and Sr isotope data, respectively, in 1981. JC is grateful to the South African NRF for providing funding for travel and analytical costs through its incentive scheme for rated researchers. We also acknowledge logistical support from Warrambie and Gowanvale farms during field work. We thank Martin Hughes for assembling the various geophysical datasets across central Victoria. These were collected by the Victorian Government as part of the Victorian Initiative for Minerals and Petroleum and provide the basis for many regional geological studies such as this. We also thank Janet Hergt and various student projects shared with NP for contributing valuable data. In his review, Ron Vernon provided many constructive suggestions for improvement of the manuscript.
