Our first stop was Lake Fyans in the Grampians, an easy drive for the first day, the only event was on the final road in we had to hit the skids and swerve to narrowly avoid stewed roos tail for the week, maybe the roo whistlers I put on the car were installed the wrong way and attracts them instead. The car and van handled it very well under what would be probably it's largest possible load - beer, fire wood, full cupboards, two fridges, beer, two full water tanks and ciders.
The caravan park at Lake Fyans is fantastic, lots of cabins close to the powered sites (wink, wink), great facilities and shallow sandy flats into the lake, great for the kids....no rises evident at dusk.
A cold night that got down to 2 degrees, but a cold frosty night gave way to a beautiful morning...
Btw, Stawel Mini World is no more, gone to dodgy park heaven alongside Leisureland, Wobbies World and Ye Olde Pi##weak World.
