Melbourne II – The Grampians

Having spent a long time inside applying for jobs, we decide to go in a mini-tour. Sam, Matty, Marcus and I went to the Grampians, a range of mountains 3 hours from Melbourne. It was a boiling hot day and we stopped a few times to see various sites.

We were picked up at 6am when it was still cold. The boys were not happy!

Driving through the countryside was bizarre. It was the first time I’d seen country Australia and the landscape was totally different to anything I’d ever seen before.

We stopped to see some real life wild kangaroos!

We also stopped for lunch and you could have kangaroo souvlaki. Sam tried it, it’s similar to beef but more gamey apparently.

Next up our guide took us to the Aboriginal Centre. It was interesting to learn about aboriginal culture and beliefs.

We headed on to see some viewpoints and could see for MILES (or should that be kilometres?).

Our group headed down hundreds of steps to an amazing waterfall.

We went on to further viewpoints after trekking through the bush for a bit.

There was an amazing lake/Dam too.

We climbed up volcanic rock (it was hot with no shoes on!) to see further.

It was a long day but so much fun and great to get away from the 4 walls of our hostel whilst we were looking for jobs!
