TravelPod Member ReviewsBoroka Downs Halls Gap
We stayed several nights in the secluded cottage at Boroka Downs. The cottage contains everything you can think and is nicely decorated. It was great to see the kangaroos hopping by while sitting outside and enjoyed the wildlife tour through the estate that was offered. Bob and Stephanie were quite friendly and we were happy to find internet available in the cottage. Overall a fabulous experience!

... the Grampian Mountain Range. We drove up the 10 km single track road, climbing heavily all the way, to the car park. From here it was only a 2km walk to the summit via the telecommunication mast metalled service road. I say only, but the gradient was lung busting and as we climbed up the conversation between us changed: "That's a lovely view." "This hill is killing me." "I need to stop for a rest."

... the fact that: 1. I was not sick in a disgusting hostel and I was instead at a nice one 2. I had very good prescription grade anti-nausea meds with me (Zofran – thanks Dad) 3. I was not as sick as I was when I got food poisoning last March after eating an oyster from a food truck at a food truck festival (that one should have been obvious). However, I was in no way shape or form in the morning to do a second hike that I had planned on ...
... peak across Lake Bellfield and over as far as Mt Zero and Mt Arapiles way way in the distance. Huge craggy hills and sharp rock.
The top of Mt Rosea is 1029. The elevation change is only 429 mtrs. So not to difficult or challenging. Just watch for the yellow markers, and take your time to take in the magnificent views. Apparently this walk has the best views of the park. We would have to agree.
... Creek, Venus Baths, and Turrett Falls. I watched some of the locals play Petanque yesterday, not a lot more successful than some of us playing at home.Today has been very cold, so a quiet day accompanying the van heater, with a visit to Moco Gallery (and coffee and cake there).
This caravan park borders the National park, and kangaroos are in abundance. Care taken when walking anywhere!
Tomorrow we move to Castlemaine, possibly for a ...
