OVERVIEW

The Grampian’s unique landscape is a phenomenal setting for a one of kind walking experience. The walk follows sections of the new Grampians Peaks Trail from Mount Zero via Halls Gap and south to Dunkeld.  Walk through rugged, craggy-yet-strangely-beautiful landscapes with some of the best views seen by foot anywhere in Australia.

The sandy soil is ideal for native plants, making this national park famous for its spring wildflowers. There are over 800 varieties of indigenous plant species, many of them wildflowers which come into vivid bloom each spring.

Highlights:

  • Venus Baths, Grand Canyon, Elephant’s Hide, Silent Street and the Pinnacle.
  • Explore Mt Stapylton and Mt Zero in the Northern Grampians

ACCOMMODATION & DINING

OVERVIEW

We have sculpted this walking holiday so that it takes in the very best of the walking in the Grampians. The walking follows a linear path so there’s no backtracking.

We start the walk at Meringa Springs a small luxury lodge, restaurant, and bar, a luxurious accommodation right next to the park. Situated 27 km northwest of Halls Gap, this beautiful resort on the sunny side of the mountains has amazing views.

The dinners that we provide in the restaurants are prepared by professional chefs, as are the cooked breakfasts.

GENERAL INFO

The Grampians walks build nicely and can be as challenging as you wish them to be. There are extra walking opportunities here, so if you want more we are pleased to offer them. Overall this walk is moderate with some moderate to challenging days, with some flat sections along well-marked trails, gradual ascents to mountain summits for spectacular views, and some steep uphill and downhill sections to the forested valleys below.

You’ll be walking an average of 17 km a day. Those that enjoy the solitude of nature will appreciate some days where you are more likely to encounter echidnas and kangaroos rather than other people.

There are five walking days on this seven-day itinerary starting in Wartook and finishing in Dunkeld. We include accommodation from day one to day six, most meals, transfers and comprehensive trip notes and walking maps. We transfer your luggage to the next accommodation so you can focus on enjoying the walking with just your daypack and what you need for the day.

For what to bring please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.

HOW TO GET THERE AND AWAY

Day one of this holiday sees you spend the night in Wartook. Regular V-Line train and coach services to Stawell are available from Melbourne. We organise for you to be transferred from Stawell to your first accommodation. There is also the option of driving to your final nights’ accommodation in Dunkeld and leaving your vehicle here during this holiday.

The Grampians walks finish on day seven in Dunkeld at the end of the Grampians Peaks Trail. For walkers who caught public transport, there are V Line coach services back to Melbourne via Ballarat.  Please use the PTV travel planner to work this through to find out the best way to get back that suits you. For more help please contact the Auswalk office.

WEATHER

September to November is usually warm. The summer months of December to March are likely to be warm, and sometimes quite hot.
