Starting from the car park off Glenelg River Road, Grampians, this walk takes you on a circuit around a remote area in Grampians Natural Park. The platform at the top is nice and offers panoramic views, while the path is forested primarily with scenic sections of Chimney pots Southern Grampians and offers a wide variety of wildflowers. You can experience the tranquillity the dense forest brings and have time for yourself. Taking a left at the Y intersection(clockwise) makes the walk easier as the track on the way up becomes more regular. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
