Port Pirie to the Grampians

Grampians National Park

Grampians National Park

After a non-eventful night in Port Pirie (in a very daggy motel), we headed down through the Bible Belt of SA and all the gorgeous little towns and churches.  From here, we turned left and headed into Victoria.

The Grampians National Park is spectacular and we had decided to spend a restful, and hopefully dry, night back in the swags.

The park is really well set up with discrete camp grounds, fenced off conservation areas, drop dunnies and outdoor shower cubicles all ready to go with a stainless steel bucket. We chose the Staypleton Campground and there were only a few other campers around.

We set up the swags, built a raging campfire and sat back with a glass of wine.  I think this is how the first night of our adventure should have been.  After sleeping like babies, I awoke early for the obligatory morning wildlife photos.  It was so peaceful.  Grumpy Driver doesnt like packing up on his own, so the camera got packed away first, then the camp.

Next stop – The Spirit of Tasmania.
