And with that, I have uploaded the last of my Grampians photos! This final set are from our last morning in the area. Considering we were going to be the in the car for a few hours we decided to take on one last hike, and I am so glad we did as it was actually quite fun. Starting from Halls Gap football oval, our first stop was Clematis Falls, which unfortunately had zero water running through it. According to google it looks beautiful. We shrugged and kept going towards Chatauqua Peak. There were some pretty good views along the way!
The turn off towards Chatauqua Peak quickly changed from a dirt track to the above photo: rocks. We followed yellow arrows and looked for well trodden areas to guide us. We had a great time jumping from rock to rock, clambering up steep rock faces, and thankfully managed to avoid hurting ourselves. It was a little nerve wracking at times when you were walking along an uneven strip of rock and to your left is a steep drop into the valleys below.
It was a great view at the end. You could see the valley all the way down to the lake we saw that day before, as well as being able to see the road out to Wonderland car park and beyond to the right (the below photo).
All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable short getaway. I would definitely recommend a visit, and it is the perfect distance for a short trip from Melbourne. We only saw a fraction of the park, so I would probably like to go back and see some of the places we missed out on. In particular I would loved to have gone to see some of the Aboriginal rock paintings. Another day, perhaps!
