Take a Hike

There is a network of pretty walking tracks that crisscross through the park, giving you the chance to get up close and personal with nature, marvel at the cascading waterfalls, and enjoy breath-taking views from the series of lookout points.

Visit Brambuk Cultural Centre

The Grampians boast a rich Aboriginal history, which you can delve into at the Brambuk Cultural Centre. Here, you can browse displays that highlight the heritage of the region and discover some of the fascinating secrets behind its natural backdrop.

Located south of the Halls Gap township, this little slice of cultural heaven provides guests with a café, a theatre, and bush tucker walks with experienced guides.

Ancient Art

Because it has such a lengthy and rich Aboriginal history, the Grampians National Park is home to some incredible rock art that dates back thousands and thousands of years. Hidden away in sandstone shelters and nestled between the soaring mountains, you can trace history back via a series of ancient paintings. Billimina Shelter, Gulgurn Manja Shelter, and the Manja Shelter are some of the best places to go to enjoy this phenomenon.

Grab Adventure by the Horns

The natural landscape of the Grampians makes for some amazing active adventures. Out in the fresh air of the park, you can try out bushwalking with knowledgeable guides or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, try your hand at rock climbing amongst the rugged cliff faces.

Elsewhere, you can hit up the selection of pristine lakes and go fishing or canoeing to explore the area from a different perspective. Lake Bellfield and Lake Wartook are ideal for this. Alternatively, you can choose to take an overnight trek to discover the region at night, or simply wander along the many hiking trails that meander through the region.
