Australia is adorned with countless incredible sights, destinations and attractions that over the years have caused it to be one of the most popular tourist regions throughout the country.

The spectacular Indian Ocean and the Bass Strait set an amazing backdrop for the breathtaking coastline, and further inland you will find some of the country’s most significant natural and cultural heritage sites.

There is no better way to explore the southern coastline of Australia than to take a drive along the Great Ocean Road. Considered to be one of the world’s most scenic drives, this fantastic road will take you to some world-renowned destinations. With a wealth of amazing beaches on your left, and lush forests and national parks on your right as you drive west from Melbourne, you’ll be delighted by the seemingly endless sights of the constantly changing landscape.

All of this, however, is not to say that southern Australia is only represented by its mesmerising coastline, but also by the destinations that lie a little further inland. Aboriginal heritage sites provide an incredible opportunity for you to learn more about the country’s roots, where it all began and how it has developed over time, and the Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Center is no exception. Nestled in the tranquil surroundings of Hall’s Gap in Grampians National Park this historical wonder will take you on a journey through time as the life and history of the Jardwadjali and Djab Wurrung communities are made clear. Here you will be offered a range of activities to take part in, including tours and displays that show the life of the indigenous people of the area, you will even have the chance to view some real rock paintings that date back thousands of years.

The Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre marks the perfect starting point for your tour of Grampians National Park. The knowledgeable and friendly staff will provide you with all the information you need to visit the centre and to explore the surrounding areas. They will explain all the significant cultural sites in and around Hall’s Gap which will allow you to make the most of your trip through this absolutely incredible landscape.

Though the country may be full to the brim with amazing attractions, there are few quite as profound as visiting these historic sites, it truly is the perfect way to get in touch with the country’s past, and to see where it all began.
