I think that the last time I saw Halls Gap as green and lush as it was had to be at least 8 years ago when we camped down there for the first time when James was just a toddler. It was amazing just how much water way lying around. Sheets of it on the paddocks, water falls were flowing and misty rain greeted us most mornings. The bus was cozy and warm and always had all the comforts of home laid on ie chocolate, drinks and plenty of food.
Of course no trip to Halls Gap is complete without lots of Four Wheel Driving. The Suzuki went everywhere we asked it to and then some.
There were lots of lovely tracks like this explored.
Flowing creeks to cross over or even drive through.
Very rarely did we have to stop and turn back. The storm that lashed Victoria during the week certainly did its best to damage parts of Halls Gap. Massive trees were snapped like they were matchsticks and apparently Halls Gap was without power for 24 hours the day before we arrived.
There were waterfalls to examine. Luckily no one fell into the water – although all the kids admittted they were hoping it would be me that fell in.
Taking photos was serious business.
Even yours truly had her photo taken.
We came home to sunny skies and semi warm tempretures which was handy as you could not see the laundry floor for washing.
