Travelled back through Boort, Charlton & St Arnaud then onto Ararat – we feel like we’ve been stuck on a merry go round going nowhere between Kerang, Murtoa and Bendigo for the past week, so it felt good to be on the move again! Tried to see the works of the famous Spannerman outside of Boort, but he wasn’t home! Ararat is so full of history, as are the surrounding townships, so we have decided to stay here for...

2016 holiday

Nov 22, 2013 - Ararat

09/11 –22/011 Heading towards the Grampians and our first camp was for 2 free nights at Wannon Falls in the Southern Grampians.

We have now decided to move on to Ararat and camp the van at Green Hill Lake Reserve, then we can tour the Grampians and beyond by car. Huge lake area and heaps on camp spots around the lake, donation requested which is very generous as they provide everything except...
