The Grampians National Park is a mecca for those whose idea of holidaying involves more than just soaking up spectacular scenery.
Borrow our bikes and take a leisurely pedal into town or perhaps join an organised tour or grab our golf clubs and spend a few hours with the wildlife looking on at the spectacular Mt Difficult Golf Club.
Escorted tours around the National Park, allow more time to indulge in the beautiful scenery and experience some of the most remote areas of the Grampians. But not all challenges in the Grampians are uphill. Take your foot off the pedal and join a downhill mountain bike tour through the ranges.
The tours, organised by outdoor specialists in Halls Gap, combine the thrill of freewheeling with a short walk and study of environmental features.
Horsing around or Quad biiking
Content to just go along for the ride? Mount up and join a trail ride through the Grampians bush, or explore on horseback or Quad bike in the attractive Wartook Valley, on the north-western fringe of the ranges.
Lakes Bellfield, Fyans and Wartook are great for canoeing or kayaking, and Fyans is perfect for water skiing most times of the year.
The fishing is great too! Lakes, rivers and streams throughout the region offer some of the finest inland fishing in Australia. Rainbow trout, brown trout and red fin are a specialty. A fishing licence is essential and can be obtained from Brambuk the National Park & Cultural Centre in Halls Gap, some service stations and Young’s Sportspower in Stawell.
For a birds eye view of the region take a scenic flight. Tours can be tailored to suit visitors’ needs not only over the Grampians but also Australia-wide.
The Grampians is regarded as a premier hard adventure destination, where rock-climbing, abseiling and extreme bushwalking are all part of the challenge. There are a range of tours and guides that can assist you to learn the skills required to conquer the mountains.
The Grampians provide access to hundreds of exciting climbs, especially on the rugged cliff faces of Mt Stapylton at the Park’s northern end, and at Mt Rosea, just south of Halls Gap. Local adventure companies offer a variety of climbing and abseiling courses designed to take you to new heights.
A variety of challenging day and overnight walks in the more remote parts of the Grampians offer the chance to trek through some of the most pristine wilderness in the state. You’ll find stunning views at almost every turn in the trail. Details on all walks in the Grampians may be obtained from Brambuk the National Park & Cultural Centre, just two kilometres south of Halls Gap on the road to Dunkeld.
