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.
Take in the stunning views from Boroka Lookout and see Halls Gap from a different viewpoint. Located 15km away from the town centre, this lookout is easily accessible and two viewing platforms can also be visited by people with limited mobility. Get a glimpse of Lake Bellfield and watch the water sparkle in the morning sun. Both Mount William (Duwul) and the Wonderland mountain ranges span wide across this panoramic lookout.
Catch unrivalled sights of Ararat and its surrounding landscape from One Tree Hill. This lookout is not only for the hiking lovers but can also be reached by car or bike. With picnic tables on the top inviting you to stay longer, this is the perfect place to take a break and observe the serene landscape together with great company.
Go for a wander and explore the iconic Pinnacle walk and lookout, named one of the Grampians’ highlights. With various walk options and levels taking between 45 minutes to 2 hours, this 2.1km hike can be reached by many scenery-seeking wanderers. There is also an extended 5 hour return journey that makes for the perfect day hike with beautiful nature spots along the way.
Enjoy standing in a popular spot that lets you see over the entire Victoria Valley and its ranges. The viewing platforms at Reed Lookout and the Balconies offer especially stunning views during sunset when the sky changes colours. Also accessible by wheelchair, the path to the lookout is even and well maintained and not shy of unique open spaces and rock formations to observe.
