Full of beauty and charm, the northern Grampians possesses some of the world's most spectacular natural scenery and a rich heritage, with the picture-perfect township of Halls Gap at its centre. Exploring the north, you will find the stunning Grampians National Park, beautiful nature reserves, quaint towns and villages and sublime food and wine experiences.
The Grampians northern region is a great place for outdoor adventure and offers some of the most iconic natural attractions from The Pinnacle, to Boroka Lookout and the famous Reeds Lookout and The Balconies.
Some of the prettiest towns and villages sit in the northern Grampians, each with their own unique attractions and atmosphere. Nestled in the heart of the Grampians National Park, Halls Gap is a delightful small village and the area is renowned for spectacular hiking, stunning views and inquisitive wildlife. St Arnaud, settled in 1855 is a former gold mining town with a rich heritage and a feeling of nostalgic whimsy. The township of Stawell is a mere 20 minutes drive from Halls Gap and plays host to the annual Stawell Gift, Australia's richest foot race and first run in 1878.
There's a wealth of stories here too, with significant Aboriginal heritage sites, art galleries, and a rich wine-making history playing home to Great Western, in the heart of the Grampians Wine Region with some of the world's oldest vines. Discover vineyards, boutique wineries, great cellar doors, underground drives and the winemakers that, well, make it happen!
