3 Day Best of the Grampians walk

Best of the Grampians walk

A guided pack free walk including 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.
