The crew at Absolute Outdoors are consummate experts when it comes to crafting safe yet adventurous experiences that leave you with a deeper understanding of yourself and the Grampians. A half-day rock climb or abseil is an invigorating way to find your zen and bond together before your visitors depart.
Outdoor escapists will most likely travel to the Grampians bikes in tow but if not, hire some from Halls Gap E-Bike Hire and scoot around town or bring your own and hit the Arapiles Big Cycle Trail. The trail can either be tackled as a 33km loop or in smaller sections. You’ll discover diverse grasslands, sand dunes, magnificent canola fields and most likely some local wildlife.
Pack a picnic and lunch at the Bluff Mount Arapiles Lookout where you’ll wow your guests with uninterrupted views of the Wimmera.
The trail begins and ends in the heritage town of Natimuk. Be sure to explore the charming town and take a stroll through the nineteenth-century heritage township where you will discover restored heritage buildings, local produce, antiques, and crafts.
Natimuk is blessed with a number of nearby lakes including picturesque Lake Toolondo – host to many recreational water sports. If your crew still has energy to burn, how about some kayaking, fishing or water skiing?
Why not mix things up and take your visitors on a wine adventure? Mountainside Wines are offering a wonderful Host with the Most 20% off their Rotundone Road Shiraz Adventure – a full day tour tasting the range of Shiraz along the route, taking in Mountainside Wines, Mount Langi Ghiran and Dogrock Winery. Whether your guests are wine connoisseurs or novices, they’ll love discovering the elegant reds and vast vineyards of these welcoming wineries.
Wherever you live, you’ll find excellent accommodation nearby to situate your guests. We’re spoilt for choice.
