HEAD NORTH WEST FROM Melbourne, past the Goldfields and you’ll come to Gariwerd, a sacred Aboriginal area you may know as The Grampians. You have left the Great Dividing Range behind.
To the north, are the mighty red gum trees of the Murray. West or north west, the trees thin out, wheat fields preval, the soil gets sandier, trees shorter and landscapes scrubbier. You are sooon on the edge of the deserts, heading to the interior of Australia.
