Walk from
Sundial Car Park to the Pinnacles


This is a great walk to the Pinnacles, slightly easier than the Wonderland to Pinnacle walk as the climb is not as great. Good for all the family, and, as we walked I was amazed at how many families did actually pass us.  All the Grampians walks are very popular.  Due to the drought we decided to take a walk and just enjoy walking, but were surprised that we did find a couple, not many, orchids along the way.
