National Parks of Australia. The Grampians

It’s not this time of the year without a trip to a National Park. This time we have chosen The Grampians National Park, Gariwerd,¬†in the west of Victoria, 260 kms from Melbourne.

Kook Kook Kook Kook, laugh your merry laughter.

Cicadas crescendo in the thick of the bush. Clouds of white corellas screech and rise above. I was hoping to see Bunjil, the mighty wedgetail eagle that is at the heart of the indigenous legend of this beautiful park. Instead I met this cheeky Kookaburra who happily posed for me for an hour.

Dreaming of the Prom

The Prom, that’s what the locals call Wilson’s Promontory. Located on the South East tip of Victoria, the southern most point of Australia’s mainland, Wilson’s Prom is a place of exceptional beauty. Many visit for the wonderful walks outdoors in the national park or for annual¬†camping holidays with family and friends.

Others travel to Wilson’s Prom in times of quiet reflection and dreaming. Its beauty pervades our being. It is beyond words.
