Enjoy Winter - The Grampians Way

Fellow regional Victorians, right now, we’re lucky.

We’re lucky because we have the space, the freedom and the opportunities to discover the incredible natural attractions on offer in our own backyard this Winter - all to ourselves.

Though we feel blessed here, we are feeling for those in Melbourne currently staying at home for Lockdown 2.0. We miss them and look forward to welcoming them back soon.

In the meantime, we’re calling out to regional travellers. Why not make the most of your freedom while our towns and villages are a bit quieter? The cool weather, with the icy chill in the air makes for the perfect time to explore our natural surroundings.

Here are a few ideas to help you start planning your Grampians Winter experience.

Winter Walks

Spending time in nature is the perfect way to re-centre. Step out and explore the Grampians National Park's spectacular natural beauty on foot. Get your body moving and soak up the magnificent mountain views and breathe in the crisp winter air. There are many walks and hikes on offer, from a gentle stroll to a full day adventure or the recently launched multi-day Grampians Peaks Trail. If you need a foodie experience to entice you to walk, check out these winter walks and gourmet treats.

Road Trips

With another jaw-dropping view around every bend, the Grampians is the ultimate destination for a road trip. Hit the road and circumnavigate the majestic Grampians National Park along the winding Grampians Way. Head deep into the countryside to uncover stunning natural attractions, rich heritage and great food and wine.

Hop on and off the Grampians Way route to experience all of the National Park’s wonders, plus find the best of what lies on its doorstep. Put together an itinerary of your own or follow one we’ve created for you. The best way to explore the whole region!

Wineries in Winter

Winter is synonymous with Shiraz, and Shiraz is synonymous with the Grampians!
The Grampians wine region is known for its world class wines, including its cool-climate, silky-smooth, peppery shiraz. With an amazing history that dates back over 100 years, winter is the perfect time to discover what makes the Grampians wine region so amazing. There are dozens of historic and boutique wineries scattered across the undulating Grampians and Henty wine regions waiting to be explored this winter.

Winter Waterfalls

With a chill in the air, now is actually the best time to embrace the winter weather and go chasing waterfalls. Winter rains are feeding the creeks and rivers, resulting in thunderous waterfalls and rainbows shimmering in the misty spray. The Grampians region is home to magnificent waterfalls, including the iconic MacKenzie Falls, one of the largest and most spectacular waterfalls in Victoria, as well as many more lesser known gems to discover.
