[Victoria] Grampians National Park

When I was staying in Melbourne for work, I asked around what are the cool things to do in Victoria that’s within a few hours’ driving. Basically the top 3 are Great Ocean Road, Grampians and Wilson’s Prom. I was lucky to be able to do 2 out of those 3. So today let’s look at what I found at the Grampians.

The main show in the Grampians National Park is the rocky mountainous trail leading up to the Pinnacle.

The walk takes about a 1.5 hours¬†one way from the Wonderland carpark and it’s not too strenuous. There’s plenty of spots where you can rest with breathtaking views! The first part of the walk goes through the Grand Canyon, which I suppose takes its cues from its larger cousin in Arizona.

After you get out of the canyon, it’s a steady uphill to the top.

At the Pinnacles, the views are profile picture worthy!
