Walking & hiking

The Pinnacle walks

Choose from two different routes up to The Pinnacle lookout – an easy to medium walk from Sundial Carpark and a more challenging climb from Wonderland Carpark.

The Pinnacle from Sundial Carpark
The easiest route to The Pinnacle, the walk from Sundial carpark via Devil's Gap is suitable for less confident walkers or those with children. Keep an eye out for native wildlife along the way, including koalas, kangaroos and even echidnas. Wear sturdy walking shoes as you may have to hop over seasonal water crossings and a few rocks. The Pinnacle lookout offers breathtaking views of Halls Gap and the Grampians' many peaks.

The Pinnacle from Wonderland Carpark
Keen hikers will welcome the more challenging walk from Wonderland carpark to The Pinnacle.
