Besides the Great Ocean Road (next on the list after we get our mail back), Victoria also has the Great Alpine Road. Recommended as a road trip, we thought ought to check it out. It was a welcome relief to the heat and you could tell that autumn was just around the corner there.
The road passes through the Alpine National Park, which protects the Australian Alps mountain ranges. Not knowing much about the park (Victoria doesn’t seem to have very good information posted online or on the roads), we just drove through the park and stopped at things that seemed interesting. First stop was Black Duck Hole. I think I managed to pick the hardest short walk in the park. It was a steep walk that wouldn’t have been so bad, except that the gravel kept making you slide. You had to be very careful with each step. The riverbend was very welcoming after the warm hike, though.
We really enjoyed our visit to Mount Buffalo National Park. We, of course, went straight to the top first (Horn Summit Lookout).

Luth family, does this remind of you any of previous exploits in his early childhood?
