Geology

Most of Campbell is dominated by the lowest layer of the Ainslie Volcanics, a grey dacite and other erupted particles such as agglomerate and tuff. In the north is grey quartz andesite, a higher layer of the Ainslie Volcanics. In the north east is cream rhyolite from the highest layer of the Ainslie Volcanics. The Ainslie Volcanics were formed in the Silurian period.A layer of the Tertiary age pebbly gravels is around Anzac Parade, left over from when the Molonglo river was at a higher level.
