Find some of Victoria's most stunning landscapes, along with fascinating history, sublime food and wine and buzzing regional centres in the Grampians region.

Rising out of the plains of western Victoria, the rugged mountain ranges of the Grampians National Park mark the centre of this region and offer plenty of opportunity for outdoor pursuits. The impressive ranges are renowned for their unspoilt natural beauty and feature lookouts with stunning panoramic views, picturesque waterfalls, ancient Aboriginal rock art, colourful wildflowers and abundant native wildlife.

Walk the region

Wining and dining

Receive hearty welcomes at the cellar doors of renowned wineries like Seppelt, Best's and Mt Langi Ghiran. Sample a dizzying array of local produce, from ewe's milk, cheese and olives to locally sourced beef and lamb, featured on menus throughout the region.
