3 Day Grampians walk

Grampians walk

A guided pack free 3-day walk including part of the Grampians Peak Trail

Covering 168,000 hectares the Grampians National Park is renowned for its outstanding mountainous scenery, a million years in the making. On this 3 day walking experience we have hand-picked the best regions in the National Park including a section of the new Grampians Peak Trail. We explore the striking weathered peaks and escarpments, towering rock formations draped with rich forests, cascading waterfalls and fern-filled gorges. Delight in the abundant bird and wildlife and 800 indigenous plant species, 20 of which are found nowhere else in the world and admire the ancient indigenous rock art, with this region having the largest number of rock art sites in southern Australia.

Explore the dramatic Grampians

Tour Itinerary

Day One: Chatauqua Peak Loop Walk
3 Day Grampians walk

Meet your guide at 7.30am at The Grand Chancellor Hotel Melbourne for transfers to The Grampians (approx 3 hours). Today’s walk takes us on the Chatauqua Peak Walk passing through beautiful ferny glades and stringybark forest to the foot of Clematis Falls. Look out for echidnas on the way as well as flocks of cockatoos rising from the trees. The views from the top of Chatauqua Peak are stunning allowing you to see views of the Eastern side of the Grampians all the way down to the Halls Gap Valley as well as the peaks on the Western side. (Note: the last 100m to the peak involves rock scrambling, for those who do not want to partake in this there are still good views). From here we transfer to our accommodation at the beautiful Meringa Springs Lodge. Enjoy time to relax in the infinity pool or in the sunset bar before enjoy dinner featuring local produce perfectly matched with superb regional wines. A wonderful way to finish the day.

Day Two: Wonderland Walk - Grand Canyon - Pinnacles
3 Day Grampians walk

Enjoy a hot breakfast featuring regional produce before we head out walking. Today’s walk is rated as one of the best walks of the Grampians. We explore the timeless landscapes of weird and wonderful shaped sandstone rock which has been shaped by wind and rain over millions of years such as Elephants Hide and the impressive Grand Canyon. Walk through lush vegetation and in the springtime bursts of colourful wildflowers can be seen and take in the tranquillity and beauty of Splitters and Bridal Veil Falls. We reach the peak of The Pinnacle, one of the rocky spurs jutting out from the jagged cliff faces of the mountains to take in astounding views over the entire Grampians and beautiful Lake Bellfield. Afterwards, we return to our accommodation for some relaxation time before a wonderful dinner.

Day Three: Fish Falls - McKenzie Falls - Helicopter Flight Mt Difficult Range - Olive Grove lunch
3 Day Grampians walk

This morning enjoy a hearty breakfast before setting out on our last day of walking. Today’s walk will take us through a gorge showcasing the two stunning waterfalls of Fish Falls and MacKenzie Falls. Walk through deep gullies as the trail follows the river downstream until we reach the dramatic multi-tiered Fish Falls. Enjoy time taking in the peace and tranquillity of this area before we continue on to the bigger and more powerful 40 metres high MacKenzie Falls. After our walk, we head to an organic Olive Grove nestled below the Mt Difficult Range for a wonderful celebratory lunch and tasting. At the Grove, our helicopter will arrive to pick us up for a spectacular scenic flight over the Mt Difficult Range allowing you to witness remote areas in the northern Grampian normally only seen on multi-day hikes carrying a heavy pack. From here we return to Melbourne the end of a wonderful journey arriving at approximately 6.30pm.
