Grampians

Well this is a bit of flash back but I still wanted to share these pics with you.  The first weekend of December (22 weeks pregnant) my husband and I had a weekend getaway to the Grampians National Park.   In years past I've spent a fair bit of time rock climbing at Mt Arapiles which is near there, but the Grampians itself isn't a region of Victoria I had visited previously and I was keen to have a bit of explore, do some bush walks and be a bit spontaneous before bub arrives.

The Grampians are about a 3 hour drive from Melbourne so we went for two nights and stayed in a really lovely boutique wooden cabin (making the most of it while we can!) in the bush at Halls Gap.  It was such a delight to wake up to the birds singing and views of my beloved Australian bush.  There was an absolute ripper thunderstorm the first night we were there too. We did a few short walks to various lookouts and Macquarie Falls, as well as a longer, and steeper walk to The Pinnacle (first two pics).  As you can see above the scenery is so beautiful, with pretty mountain steams perfect for a little paddle and a friendly native.

FYI, you can view my review of these hiking shoes and the most amazing bushwalk in Victoria HERE.
