Dear Lauren,

Greetings from Geelong, Australia! This postcard is an Australian one, but I bought it the first time I lived here, back in 2004. At that time, I had only just recently moved from Sydney to Melbourne, and started dating the man who would eventually become my husband. The Grampians trip was our first Australian holiday together. I remember staying in a B&B and feeling rather grown up, and the space and the dryness of the Australian landscape. We went for a walk up the mountains, sat on rocks like the ones you can see on this postcard here, and looked out into the distance. I also remember the wild kangaroos, and that there was a bakery that claimed to sell the best Vanilla Slice in Victoria.

I’ve just looked on Google Maps, and the Grampians are only a two-and-a-half hour drive from where we currently live in Geelong. It’s now definitely on my list as a family holiday spot in the years to come.

Wishing you all the best,
Tash
