Overview

Wildflowers

A burst of yellow from a showy parrot pea bush, delicate scented sun orchids bending in the wind, banksias in all their bold, spiky glory. Cross paths with a dazzling array of native flowers in the Grampians. Once described as the 'garden of Victoria', the region is home to more than one third of Victoria's flora.

Wander through diverse landscapes and see vivid wildflowers that change with the seasons, taking in everything from subalpine forest and woodlands to heathlands, swamps and riverine territory.

Visit in spring to see the canola fields in full bloom, adding a bright yellow backdrop to the landscape's stunning wildflowers.

Northern Grampians

The first displays of flowers usually appear in the north, where grasslands support eremophila and the open woodlands have their own displays of orchids, flowering shrubs and trees. For the best views, head to the areas around Heatherlie Quarry, Mount Zero and Mount Stapylton, and along Pohlners Road and Roses Gap to Mount Zero Road.

Wartook Valley

In the Wartook Valley, admire late winter displays of massed acacia along Roses Gap Road that are replaced by miles of Grampians thryptomene in spring, when tiny white blossoms turn to delicate pinks and light browns. For more great displays, venture along Pohlners Road, Lodge Road and Rose Creek Road, and around the Asses Ears. On foot, the Zumsteins–MacKenzie River walk and the walks to the Balconies and to MacKenzie Falls Lookout are well worth a wander.

Halls Gap

Visit Halls Gap at the start of October and experience the colour and excitement of the Wildflower Walkabout Weekend. Join local green thumbs and visitors alike for a weekend of guided walks, night-time strolls and bird watching sessions.

In and around Halls Gap, the road to Boroka Lookout and the walk to Boronia Peak are both ideal wanders for a range of wildflowers and the Delleys Dell–Silverband Falls area is great for ferns.

Southern Grampians

The southern plains of the region host numerous wildflowers and native grass species, purple, pink and orange peas, flowering shrubs, bluebells and pincushions, as well as green and red correas. Find picture perfect displays along the Halls Gap–Dunkeld Road, from the summit of Mount William, and from the Piccaninny near Dunkeld.
