The Grampians National Park is an incredible mountain range west of Melbourne.
It is home to over 1,000 species of native plants and 250 species of Australian birds. As well as other Australian animals including kangaroos and wallabies.
On our day tour from Melbourne we explore the walks, wildlife and waterfalls of the National Park.
The area is very significant to the local Aboriginal people and is home to the majority or Aboriginal rock art.
On the drive out to the Grampians we stop in at Ballarat to learn about the gold mining history, and enjoy some morning tea.
Once we arrive in the Grampians National Park we take a short walk to Silverband Falls. Then we visit Halls Gap for our packed lunch from the country-style bakery.
The afternoon is spent visiting lookouts including Reeds Lookout and Boroka Lookout. We also visit MacKenzie Falls, the largest waterfall in the National Park. Here you can walk to the base of the falls or take a scenic walk to the Bluff Lookout.
We also walk through the Grand Canyon. This is a gorge with stone steps leading you between towering rock walls. It is a short but challenging walk with spectacular views from the top.
We finish off the day returning to Halls Gap where kangaroos come into the town in the evenings to feed on the grass.
If you enjoy getting off the beaten track, and want to enjoy these incredible places, come and join us on our Grampians National Park Tour.
