Indigenous Culture

Gariwerd (the Aboriginal name for the Grampians) is pivotal to many ancient stories of Aboriginal communities in south-western Victoria.

The region has the largest number of rock art sites in southern Australia and over 80% of Victoria’s rock art sites. Visitors are invited to experience six of these cultural sites for themselves.

You can learn about our region’s unique Aboriginal culture and history at Brambuk – The National Park and Cultural Centre in Halls Gap and Gariwerd.

Start your journey with informative commentary, learning about the Grampians region and how it all connects to the landscape you will be visiting in Budj Bim National Park. The Budj Bim Cultural Landscape is a unique place with one of the world's oldest aquaculture systems that demonstrate how Gunditjmara people used the natural resources of the Victorian southwest region to establish a permanent place of human society going back tens of thousands of years. Visit this special location with Experience the Grampians with departure locations of Halls Gap, Dunkeld, and Hamilton.
