Grampians National Park

Ok, first off before I start this, I am SUPER behind! We are almost at the end of our travels now, so we are cramming in the activities; hence the delay. I’m going to try and write a few posts at a time to keep them more frequent, so stay tuned! I’m thinking “Travel Tuesdays” and post every week πŸ™‚ There’s lots more to come. 

So we left Port Fairy, and drove all the way to the Grampians National Park. It was the prefect journey to exercise our vocal cords πŸ˜‰ (mainly cause there was no one around to hear us wailing!) On the way we stopped at a couple of lookouts to see Mt Surgeon and Mt Abrupt. It was impressive to see all of the lush green covering the mountains, after being by the coast for so long.

We arrived at the campsite in the afternoon, and after some deliberation (and a snack!), we headed to a couple of the scenic lookouts. First of all we went to Borkoa lookout.

It is absolutely breathtaking, and an awesome “scare your mom” selfie spot πŸ˜‰ The weather was glorious too so the view was incredible. 

  
We then headed to Reeds lookout, and walked along the balconies. It was an interesting walk with some beautiful scenery.

There were some oddly stacked rocks along the way. Like loads! It was a bit peculiar, but I recently found out it’s a thing the locals get tourists to do! (Not anything spiritual that could give you bad juju if you knock them down like I thought!)

 After that we headed back to camp to be greeted by a mob of kangaroos. One of which was very curious and interested in our dinner! They were adorable. 

  
The next day we were up bright and early to make the most of our time in the national park. 

Firstly we walked along the Wonderland loop to splinter falls. It was a pretty cool walk, we had to do a lot of climbing and jumping along rocks. The weather was on our side again so that made it even better πŸ™‚ 

  
Once we got back to the van (and caught our breathe!) we continued to Mckenzie falls. The walk down to the falls wasn’t too far but just sooooo many steps (getting back up was a challenge). 

  
The falls were awesome though, one of the biggest I had seen so far. The sound was equally as impressive. If it hadn’t been so chilly I would have been tempted by a swim. 

Once we made it back to the van, we cranked up the music and continued to our next campsite! 

Bye for now
