Escape the everyday and discover a new perspective in the Grampians. The rugged mountain ranges, cosy country pubs, historical towns, and wide-open spaces will awaken your sense of adventure and create memories for a lifetime.
If you’re coming in from Melbourne, your first stop should be Great Western Hotel for a mean, classic pub feed. Drop into one of the cellar doors in the region including Best’s Wines, Seppelt Wines or Pomonal Estate to pick up elegant wines for your trip or to take home for loved ones.
Once you’re finished here settle into or set up your accommodation in Halls Gap, known to many as the beating heart of the Grampians, or one of our region’s other hamlets.
We suggest planning ahead of time and making an accommodation booking before you arrive. The Grampians is renowned for its excellent range of accommodation to suit all types, from camping, caravanning to luxury houses and glamping.
For the perfect pairing of hiking and sleeping out, don’t go past the Grampians Peaks Trail for camping options on the mountains. And if you’re looking for a camping adventure among native wildlife and peaceful bushlands, the Grampians National Park is the perfect place to set up. Take a look at Parks Victoria’s approved campgrounds for more information.
Setting up camp won’t take you long. Now it’s time to familiarise yourself with the Grampians, get out in nature and explore with a self-guided 4WD tour
There are plenty of opportunities to take the road less travelled and experience the more remote areas within the Grampians National Park. For the perfect introduction to four wheel driving in the Grampians download this brochure. This 4WD tour winds among spectacular mountain peaks and dramatic rock formations and features waterfalls, panoramic views and ancient Aboriginal rock art sites.
Perhaps a 4WD adventure isn’t your thing, so instead visit one of many our pristine lakes and cast a line as the sun begins to descend behind the surrounding mountains. Popular fishing spots include; Lake Wartook, Green Lake Hill, or closer to Halls Gap you can enjoy the peace and quiet at Lake Bellfield.
To end your day, unwind and enjoy a beverage over a satisfying dinner. Each of the lakes are not too far away from a cosy restaurant or pub. From Lake Wartook drop in to the The Wander Inn. If you’re coming from Green Lake go to Baa 3400 and from Lake Bellfield make your way back into Halls Gap for a hearty local feed at the Kookaburra Hotel or Paper Scissors Rock Brew Co.
