The Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park is teeming with native wildlife and offers visitors to the area a wonderful opportunity to see iconic Australian animals in their natural environment.
Kangaroos and emus can be seen, in abundance, all around the Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park, but a popular location for a great photo opportunity is the Halls Gap Recreation Reserve.
Just remember – they are still wild animals. Whilst the kangaroos will tolerate visitors approaching them for a photo opportunity we ask that you do not pat or feed the wildlife for your safety and theirs.
It also not unusual to encounter swamp wallabies, echidnas, and the occasional shingleback lizard (during warmer weather) on the roads and walking trails around the Grampians.
The region is also brimming with birdlife. From beautiful parrots to warbling magpies and currawong - the sound of birdsong is all around. A rest at the centrally located Stony Creek Stores, in Halls Gap will ensure you have the opportunity to meet a friendly local rosella, cockatoo or even a cheeky kookaburra!
