Grampians National Park

Grampians National Park - From Barooka Lookout

So glad to be here, even though yesterday's look out at Mt. Williams was a disappointment. Not much there anyway, and with loads of uphill walk.

It's tough, and hot, walking on Mt. Williams

We stayed for night at this nice 3 stars RACV motel, with the Grampians as our neighbour behind our back.

I can assure you that this is a very wild bird,
like your neighbourhood Sparrows

Get to look at two wild kangaroos on our drive to Baroka Look out. First time to see a wild kangaroo after seeing that "Kangaroo next 5km" sign for umpteen times.

It nice to get away from the city, as the Grampians offer a different relaxing environment. The rocks here are from very very very old time. Dad think even the rock surface show signs of old age, cause of the wrinkles and liver spots on them. Haha... Even the trees here look like very old witches congregating around. I would guess this place is so spooky during the cold moody winter months.

Driving back to Melbourne, we found ourselves at such great weather today. It is wonderful to be in Melbourne during Spring after all.

Victoria is a wild wild place
