 Itinerary

Initiate your adventure from Melbourne and delve into the mesmerizing Grampians National Park.

Throughout this excursion, a knowledgeable guide will navigate you across the Time-Honored Terrain, revealing the area’s rough mountain ranges and striking sandstone formations. This experience will enhance your understanding of the natural environment and the region’s historical significance. 

Travelling 250 kilometres west of Melbourne, you will pass through picturesque towns steeped in the rich history of the Victorian gold rush era. While travelling, take the opportunity to explore the mining heritage and enjoy a morning drink.
Upon arrival in Grampians National Park, guests can visit the Brambuk Indigenous Cultural Centre. Here, you will learn about the creation stories that are an integral part of the cultural fabric of this diverse landscape. It is also a great place to observe wildlife such as wallabies, emus and echidnas in their native habitat. Your visit will culminate in a deep respect for the significance of the Gariverd to the indigenous people.
Reeds Lookout offers panoramic views of Lake Worthuk, the Victoria Valley and the Mount Diflorid Range. A walk along a shady path lined with eucalyptus trees and intriguing rock structures leads you to the Balcones. Here, you can see the famous ‘Joy of Death’ sculpture and enjoy the grand views and scenery that inspired the Japanese animated film ‘Princess Mononoke’.
Mackenzie Falls, a famous waterfall in the Victoria Valley, is the centrepiece of a circular hike that allows you to enjoy abundant water and experience the refreshing mist. The hike includes approximately 250 steps that will take you to the base of the falls. For those who wish, taking a flatter trail above the falls is an option. In cases where Mackenzie Falls is inaccessible, an alternative destination is a peaceful walk to Silverband Falls.
A stop at Boroka Lookout offers stunning views of the extraordinary landscape. Depending on the weather and clarity, we may head to Bellfield Lake and wander along the causeway between two mountain ranges.

Known for its large population of kangaroos, these marsupials graze on the grass at Halls Gap, saving locals from using lawnmowers.

On a Grampians tour, you can encounter a variety of Australian bird species, including kookaburras and emus. You will get to see kangaroos during your trip.

Echidnas and wallabies are also common in this region. While it’s important not to feed these wild creatures, be prepared to capture them on your camera with a fully charged battery. 

Eventually, it will be time to head back to the city. The three-hour return journey from Grampians includes a pause to buy dinner (at your own expense).

Use this time to relax and reflect on the day’s adventures. You will arrive in Melbourne around 20:30, with the option to disembark at the original pickup point or near public transport stops.
