Overview

Walking & hiking

Step out and explore the Grampians region's spectacular natural beauty on foot. Take in some of the most outstanding wilderness in the state on a short gentle stroll or a full day adventure.

Test your stamina by hiking through the Grand Canyon up to The Pinnacle or walking through heathy woodland to the stunning views of Mt Abrupt. For something a bit less strenuous, wander out to spectacular Mackenzie Falls or revel in sweeping views of Victoria Valley from The Balconies, located just 30 minutes from Reed Lookout.

Behind the scenes in the Grampians

Put on your walking shoes, pack appropriately and choose one of the marked bushwalking trails that wind across the escarpments of the Grampians National Park. Look out in every direction and see deep, shaded, fern-filled gorges, seasonal streams tumbling off the rock faces, and spectacular peaks.

Indigenous rock art

Hike across the rugged Grampians' landscape to a number of ancient rock art sights. The region has the largest number of rock art sites in southern Australia and over eighty percent of Victoria's rock art sites. Five sites are open to the public including, Billimina, Gulgurn Manja, Manja, (all in the Grampians National Park) and Bunjil's in Black Range Reserve near Stawell.

Other parks

Wander into the region's other parks and reserves, like Little Desert, Mt Arapiles and Mt Buangor. Follow the trails and make your way to lookouts, waterfalls and internationally renowned climbing sites.
