If you're at the Grampians National Park, set time aside for the Balconies. A 12km, 20-30 minute uphill drive away from Halls Gap, the Balconies are a *must* visit for an ultimate photographic opportunity. This spot was once known as the 'Jaws of Death'.
To get there, take the exit to Reeds Lookout. Reeds Lookout itself is a great photo opp for great panoramas of the lush and breath-taking mountain surrounds.
The Balconies are a gentle walk way from Reeds Lookout - some 2km though. There are plenty of spots along the first km to take photos, so do allocate time for this. Be prepared and wear shoes and bring a torchlight. You'll be walking 2km back in the dark if you stay for sunset.
It's a superb spot for sunset - bring your tripods! It's a brilliant place to do time-lapse videos too. Here, you get amazing views of the Victoria Range and valley to the south. To the north, there's Lake Wartook and Mount Difficult. With the right cloud conditions, you get to witness a dynamic cloud dance whilst the sun sets into a school bursting full of pink, on others, you'll see storm clouds building - nevertheless it's still a spectacle.
