Aug 15, 2014 - The Grampians

When I woke up in Dunkeld there was a blanket of thick fog, which was quite welcome because it stopped the temperature from dropping so much overnight . It had lifted a little by the time I had breakfast and a shower, packed the car and was ready to leave. But as I drove up the valley the tops of the grampians were still shrouded in clouds. The grampians are thickly forested and very steep. While you never cease to be aware of the cliff on one side of the road and the sheer drop on the other side of the road ( which I found scary! ), you...

Oct 31, 2013 - The Grampians

(Ben) Our first destination in Victoria was the Grampians and that's where we made it to yesterday after restocking in Horsham. We're camped at Smith's Mill campsite, the location of an old timber mill which burnt down in 1950 and of which there is almost no evidence left now.

After this we headed to the stunning Mackenzie Falls which we spent a long time looking round to fully take it. We were then reccomended to head slightly off the beaten track and walk to another set of...

Apr 9, 2008 - Great ocean road and Grampions

First day and we are off along the famous great ocean road. The first stop I think is for the benefits of the shops as it is the surfing capitol and has all the surf retail outlet shops. If I had money I would have gone crazy but with very little and still so much to see I just window shopped. Yep believe it or not, I bought nothing!!!! With Tourque’s shops you have to have a famous surfing beach near by and just down the road is Bells beach, where all the famous surfing competitions are held. Not today though as there was very little surf...
