Did you know, immersing yourself in nature has incredible benefits for your overall mood, appetite and sleep? It’s no surprise that camping is one of the best ways to experience your natural surroundings. And what better place to pitch a tent or hitch a caravan than in the Grampians.

The Grampians region is renowned for its picturesque camping locations, surrounded by spectacular views of mountains, wildlife and clear starry nights. Below is a round-up of the top camping destinations for your next getaway.

With two different locations offering ample powered and non-powered sites, Breeze Holiday Parks is the perfect base for your Grampians escape.

Situated in Halls Gap, Breeze Holiday Parks Halls Gap is the ideal location for those wanting to explore neighbouring hiking tracks, cafes and restaurants.

Further down the road, just outside of the National Park you’ll also find Breeze Holiday Parks Grampians. Complete with a swimming pool, spectacular views of rolling hills, and plenty of space for guests and canines, it’s no wonder people settle in for days at a time.

Don’t be deterred by the cool temperatures as both Parks offer firepits and firewood to keep you feeling toasty. The only prerequisite is a glass of locally produced wine and marshmallows for a night under the stars.
