DESCRIPTION

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Grampians National Park, Halls Gap, Victoria 3381 Australia

In one day we take you from Melbourne to experience the highlights of this breathtaking National Park.

You will feel as though you have stepped back in time as you marvel at the Ancient Landscape with rugged mountain ranges and spectacular sandstone ridges. With an experienced guide leading you through this incredible scenery, you will come away from tour with a new understanding of the countryside and history of the region.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Halls Gap General Store, Grampians road, Halls Gap, Victoria Australia

Before heading ‘up the mountain’ we relax in the picturesque town of Halls Gap, right in the heart of the Grampians National Park for time to grab lunch (at your own expense).

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Brambuk The National Park & Cultural Centre, 277 Grampians Rd, Halls Gap, Victoria 3381 Australia

Once we have arrived in the picturesque National Park, we head to Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre, where you can explore and see first hand the creation stories that make up the lore of this diverse landscape. Venture around the cultural centre to spot wallabies, emus and maybe even echidnas in the bush. Come away with a deeper understanding of the significance of Gariwerd for the Indigenous people.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Boroka Lookout, Mt Difficult Road, Halls Gap, Victoria 3381 Australia

A picture stop at the marvellous Boroka lookout perfectly depicts the incredible scenery. Depending on the weather and visibility we may alternatively head to Lake Bellfield to walk out along the damn and feel dwarfed in-between the two mountain ranges.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: MacKenzie Falls, Victoria Australia

Probably the most famous waterfall in Victoria, we hike down to the base and back to marvel at the sheer amount of water and to feel the fresh spray in the air. The hike is about 250 steps to the base and back and if you prefer an easier flat walk out over the top of the falls this is absolutely fine!

If ever Mackenzie Falls were closed to the public this stop would be substituted for a peaceful hike to Silverband Falls.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: The Balconies, Reeds Lookout Carpark, Victoria Australia

We then enjoy a hike along the shady path through the gumtrees and fascinating rock formations out to The Balconies, here you will see the famous ‘Jaws of Death’ with majestic views and scenery, featured in the Japanese Animation ‘Princess Mononoke’.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Reed Lookout, Halls Gap, Victoria Australia

Reeds Lookout affords sweeping views down to Lake Wartook and out over the Victoria Valley and the Mount Difficult Range.

Duration: 30 minutes
