Gazing in the Grampians
Getting out to the Grampians, into one of my favourite locations in Victoria was a wonder to behold. Our home for the weekend was the Bedford, a fully renovated 1968 bus that had it all. Our host Greta had given us tips and left a few maps of surrounding hikes and adventures for us. We chose our top destinations and headed straight out to explore the mountains and bushland.
The bedford was fully self sustaining, with fresh water, 12v DC electricity, gas cooker, surround sound and heating throughout the bus. All cooking utensils are also supplied and the outback shed contains your own bbq space with amenities for making a campfire or to grab a few sun chairs.
You share the campground with a few neighbours but with so much space available you can choose to mingle or keep to yourself as you please. The vast open property allows you to go for short walks around your own backyard and see loads of Australian wildlife, including kangaroos, wallabys, emus, sheep and a plethora of native Australian birds.
We spent our days hiking, exploring lookouts and chasing waterfalls before settling in with a hot shower, some dinner and stargazing. Rest your feet by the fire and take in the Milky Way as your mind begins to clear and the rejuvenation begins....
