Murray-Sunset - 26-30 October 2017


This is where we went.


With an elevation above sea level of 148m and rising 43m above the surrounding country, Mt Wycheproof is the world's smallest registered mountain.

Entering the Murray-Sunset National Park, the largest national park in Victoria.

The old border fence needs a bit of work in order to keep those pesky Croweaters out!
