The mountains, cliffs and sheer cliffs of the Grampian Mountains rise like waves above the smooth western plains. On the territory of this magnificent national park, the third largest in Victoria, there is a wide variety of natural landscapes and rich fauna and flora.
There are rocky slopes, cascading waterfalls and mountain peaks made of sandstone, all formed 400 million years ago by ejecting up the surface layer of the earth’s crust. Local Aboriginal tribes have called this place gariverd for thousands of years and considered it sacred, and 80% of native rock art is concentrated here. The Brambuk Living Culture Centre, near Halls Gap, is run by local Aboriginal communities and arranges sightseeing trips to many places.
Grampians offers tourists numerous routes. Day trips lead to the spectacular Mackenzie Falls and the Belconis Cliffs. Longer tours offer camping in the bush, exploring wild plants, exploring the Victoria Valley from the hills from Halls Gap and night hiking trips to the southern part of the park. Experienced climbers gather from all over the world to test themselves on the rocks of the park, as well as in the nearest Mount Arapiles.
Maps of the area and guides to routes are available in the tourist center of the park.
