Overview

Destinations

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

Lace up your boots for some of the finest walking in Victoria, or set your sights on the famed rock faces of Mt Arapiles for rock climbing and abseiling experiences. Enjoy water sports including fishing and canoeing in the region's popular inland lakes and rivers.

Abundant offerings

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. Have the meal of a lifetime at Dunkeld's Royal Mail Hotel and, if you love a party, time your trip to coincide with the popular Grampians Grape Escape Food and Wine Festival in May.

Proximity to the national park

Base yourself in the town of Halls Gap, picturesquely situated in the heart of the Grampians National Park for wonderful views of the Wonderland Range and Mt William Range. Go a little further off the beaten track and make Pomonal or Dunkeld your base for exploring the park.

Gold rush past and cosmopolitan present

Explore historic gold rush towns such as Ararat, known for its Gum San Museum that reveals the history of Chinese gold miners, or Stawell, home of the prestigious annual Stawell Gift foot race.

Seek more cultural fulfillment in the friendly agricultural towns of Horsham and Hamilton, known for their galleries, gardens and museums.
