The Grampians

16th - 18th Jan By Mark

sunny 32 °C

The Grampians were a bit of an unplanned detour but one of those pleasant surprises that make travelling so rewarding.

The Grampians mountain range, yet another national park, was our home for two nights but you could easily spend a week here making the most of the walks, mountain climbs and just outstanding views.

Our first nights camping was at the end of a long, dusty dirt track that Betsey isn't built for, but handled like a trooper regardless. We couldn't have asked for a better spot and the slow, bumpy drive was well worth the effort. We were rewarded with a family of Kangaroos happily hopping around the site and when the stars came out at night the light show was stunning...so bright, so clear and seamingly so much closer.

On our second day we picked one of the moutain routes to embark upon. Up until now the mountains we've been up have been hikes and some boulder hopping...this one was more than a little challenging with some tough terrain to handle but it made it much more fun and certainly more rewarding when we reached the top and took in the view.
