The following day we thought we would not try anymore “walks”. As it is our second visit to The Grampians, we have visited some of the more popular sites. So we thought we would go somewhere that is not specially marked out on the tourist map. We pick the Glenelg River but on the way we saw a sign for Silverband Falls and decided to stop. It was a short walk, about 1km to the falls, this time, just an easy level walk.
Turned out after driving for about an hour to the Gleneg River that the road to the crossing was closed!! After a while we thought, it mustn’t be far away, let’s just walk. So we parked the car by the road and took our picnic lunch and set off. The river was only about 200m away, smaller than I had imagined, and the bridge was closed, I suppose that must be why the road was closed.
We spread our picnic mat and eagerly tucked into lunch. It was very idyllic, bright sun and quiet except for nature. We hadn’t seen another vehicle since we had turned off the main road onto the unpaved gravel road headed for the river.
