Mount William (Duwul)

Break in your hiking boots and reach the top of Mount William (Duwul). Standing tall at 1,167 metres, it’s the highest point in the Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park. Although only a steep walk will take you to the peak, it’s well worth it for the fantastic 360-degree view of open plains once at the very top. A moderately fit person can do this must-see hike in 45 minutes but the entire mountain ranges still await if you want to take it easy.
