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.
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. Im going to the Grampians
National Park. Quickly I jumped out of bed all excited about driving
into new country, who knows what Ill see and what will happen. It was
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.
