Grampians Peaks Trail Hike to new heights

Grampians National Park is part of the Gariwerd Aboriginal cultural landscape. Parks Victoria respects the deep and continuing connection that Traditional Owners have to these lands and waters, and we recognise their ongoing role in caring for Country.

The spectacular Grampians Peaks Trail is a challenging 160km 13-day/12-night hiking experience through the rugged interior of the Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park. Starting at Mt Zero in the north and heading south, the trail passes over the summit of Mt Difficult (Gar), continues through Halls Gap with hiking highlights including Redman Bluff, Major Mitchell Plateau and Mt Abrupt before reaching Dunkeld in the south.

Stay at unique hike-in campgrounds along the trail, climb dramatic mountain peaks with panoramic views, and hike along rugged rocky ridgelines. Experience a rich diversity of flora and fauna and the ancient Aboriginal culture of Gariwerd.
