A pretty village on the eastern slopes (the sunrise side) of the Mount William Range, Pomonal is known for its native wildflowers, orchids, olives and wildlife.

Explore the Pomonal Tunnel Walking Track, climbing to the top of the Mt William Range, where you will be rewarded with views of the Serra Range. On the descent, stop by the historic water tunnel that goes through the Mt William Range to supply water from Fyans Creek to Pomonal and Stawell.

Local tips:

  • Take the short drive out of Pomonal to get to Halls Gap Zoo.  Pack a picnic for lunch and see native wildlife including wombats, emus, dingoes and possums in a native bushland setting.
  • Stop in at Red Rock Olives for some great local produce, share a grazing plate or enjoy a light lunch and stock up on your olive oil. 
  • For great places to stay nearby try Lake Fyans Tourist park, Boroka Downs Retreat  and Grampians Pioneer Cottages.  
  • In spring the town is bursting with colour from the wildflowers, experience all that nature has to offer at the annual Pomonal Native Flower Show which features over 300 beautiful native flowers.
