LOST IN THE GRAMPIANS NATIONAL PARK

by Phillip Shipton

Grampians National Park

Lost in the Grampians is what I decided to call this article as it was the most eventful and exhilarating moment of my trip through Victoria and the southern part of New South Wales.

I’m awake again at 6 am in an extremely narrow and uncomfortable bed in a small Hotel room just of the main street in Ballarat. My room is a mess made all the worse by the small size of the room. “I’m going to the Grampians National Park.” Quickly I jumped out of bed all excited about driving into new country, who knows what I’ll see and what will happen. It was an adventure.

Because most of my items were packed the night before I quickly stowed all the things I would need for the drive, water, maps of the area, sunnies, hat, and a few other items. Packed the car, left the keys in the room with the door unlocked and started the engine on my brand new Ford Ka2.

The drive out of Ballarat heading towards The Grampians was eventful in that you get to drive along an Avenue of Honour. This avenue stretches for 22 kms lined with trees, each with a plaque to remember a soldier that died during World War 1. The trees are planted about 10 metres apart for the entire distance. You also get to travel under The Avenue of Honour Gate that is the entry point to the Avenue of Honour.
