The Wallaby Rocks Track – The Grampians, VIC

While in The Grampians, Bucko and I decided to go off the beaten track, to do a bit of exploring, without the crowds.  The Kiosk Manager at Mackenzie Falls,  had drawn a ‘mud map’ for us, of a few unusual rock formations he had discovered during his nine years of tramping about the Falls area.



Rose Creek Road (which leads of the main road),  is a fairly good, graded, dirt road, which has a number of tracks ‘running’ off it.   

The track we had to look out for was ‘Wallaby Rocks Track’, and here it is, the start of our adventure.

Now the road is 4WD only, and the Land Cruiser ‘came to the party’ and did very well, just what it was built for.   

We had three ‘mud maps’ to guide us and to tell the truth, because we were unfamiliar with what to look for, we found only two of the special rock formations.  However, we were very happy with the places we did find, along with a couple of discoveries of our own.  All up the total distance we travelled along the track was 32kms, but, it took us nearly 4-5 hours, including our lunch stop.  At the end of the day, we both felt our trip on the Wallaby Rock Track was the highlight of our visit to The Grampians.   

I will let the pictures tell the story – enjoy.  To see the photos, Click on VIEW FULL ALBUM
