Grampians National Park, Victoria Holidays

Grampians National Park is a nature reserve in Victoria, Australia. It’s known for its sandstone mountains, wildflowers and wildlife including echidnas and wallabies. Near the village of Halls Gap, the Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre gives insight into local Aboriginal history and rock art. Trails lead to waterfalls like towering MacKenzie Falls and lookouts such as the Balconies, with views of the Victoria Range.

Grampians National Park Holidays

Most of Victoria's Aboriginal sites are here in the Grampians, known as Gariwerd to the Aboriginal clans that have been connected to the place for more than 22,000 years. Evidence of this history – including ancient oven mounds and 60 rock art sites – is scattered across the region. Visit the famous Bunjil's Shelter and see Bunjil, the traditional creator of the land, depicted with his two dingoes. Walk round the Ngamadjidj Shelter and see Ngamadjidj's spirit dancing with white figures on the walls. Gulgurn Manja translates to "hands of young people", and this shelter in the Northern Grampians is covered with small, red ochre handprints. You can take a guided tour from Halls Gap for a richer understanding of Victoria's five Aboriginal communities.
The Grampians is home to some of Australia's oldest vines and olive groves. There are more than 15 wineries in the area. You may have heard of the nearby Great Western and Henty wine regions, too. The area is famous for quality reds, vibrant whites and a few big names, such as Seppelt, Montara, Mount Langi Ghiranand Best's. You can jump aboard a Grampians winery tour and leave the car, and your worries, behind. Or hop on a Grampians Helicopters picnic tour and really take in the grand scale of the surrounds. Halls Gap comes to life every autumn with the Grampians Grape Escape. This food and wine festival showcases the best of the region in an inviting and friendly atmosphere that will have you feeling like a local.
Interwoven with Aboriginal history are awe-inspiring landscapes forged millions of years ago. Trek the rugged cliffs and cascading waterfalls of Grampians National Park. Go fishing or canoeing on Lake Bellfield and Lake Wartook and get up close to native animals such as koalas, kangaroos, emus and wedge-tailed eagles. Travel to Mount Arapiles-Tooan State Park, where you can scale dramatic rock formations. A little further afield is Little Desert National Park, where heathlands throw vibrant wildflower displays from August to October. Explore the Grampians' vast sandstone mountains in a 4WD or experience their grandeur from a light aircraft with A Kube Aviation.
