This is a circuit trip starting and finishing in Melbourne. The Grampians walks and tracks vary a lot. Many are rough and rocky underfoot and on these tracks, we will walk slower and cover less distance than on other trips.
The tracks vary in quality but all are easily passable. There are some opportunities for more eager walkers to really challenge themselves, but the main walks are all moderate, bar the Mount Rosea day where the grading just scrapes in as moderate, due to some challenging sections.
This trip operates with two knowledgeable engaging guides so we can offer easier and harder walk options along the way.
Pre and post tour accommodation:Our pick up location for this trip is the Quay West Suites (higher quality) in Southbank Melbourne or the Travelodge Hotel Melbourne in Southbank with an early departure of 8:30 am (we request you be there by 8.15 am). It would be beneficial to stay near here as it is near everything. There are many options, however, we can also recommend the nearby DoubleTree By Hilton Hotel Melbourne. The trip finishes in Melbourne around 1.00 pm on the last day.
For what to bring please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.
Our choice for this trip is spring time as the wildflowers are at their best and the weather is usually warm and sunny.
See the Bureau of Meteorology for information about temperatures and rainfall ahead of time to ensure proper clothing.
We strongly recommend the purchase of travel insurance for all of our trips. We absolutely require that you purchase a travel insurance policy for all travel overseas. We charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it. It is also important in the event of an accident or loss of property. See FAQ’s for more information.
For nearly 30 years we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.
