It’s the best time to escape the city with a road trip to the Grampians. Show your Mum your appreciation and treat her to a weekend of adventure this Mother’s Day. From delicious wines and food options, to stunning nature spots and fun activities – there are plenty of experiences awaiting in the Grampians.

Travel comfortably and book a tour with Experience The Grampians or take your Mum on a tour with a private driver to easily get to all your destinations.

Dominelli and Co

Explore the regional produce

Serving genuine Indian cuisine and quality dishes, savour at Spirit Of Punjab Indian Restaurant if you are looking for a hearty meal.

Also take a short break at Dominelli & Co. to find artisan produce and premium quality products such as a variety of creamy cheese, handmade pies and freshly baked goods.

Top off this gourmet journey with a stopover at independent brewing company Grampians Ale Works and look at the selection of craft beer.

Mount Langhi Ghiran

Visit award-winning wineries

Being home to some of the world’s oldest vines, enjoy the picturesque views of the Grampians at one of the many award-winning wineries. Say a toast to Mother’s Day with a spicy Shiraz at Mount Langi Ghiran or indulge in the rich flavours and history of Hounds Run Vineyard.

Together with the woman of the day, discover scenic views with a flight over Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park touring with Grampians Helicopters who can also take you to a winery to sip on a glass of elegant Merlot afterwards. Last-not-least, pay Grampians Wine Cellar a visit and pick up an amazing wine bottle made in the local Grampians region.
