OVERVIEW OF THE TOUR
Travel into the heart of the spectacular Grampians National Park - one of the world's oldest and most spectacular mountain ranges - which rises abruptly to dominate the surrounding plains. Explore Aboriginal history and culture, and prepare yourself for some seriously breath-taking scenery. This tour is sure to leave you in awe.
Your experienced guide will point out our unique wildlife, including kangaroos, emus and a vast array of birdlife - be sure to keep your eyes open as the Grampians are teeming with wildlife.
This tour will commence with a journey through the Victorian countryside, stopping for a snack and drink in the quaint town of Beaufort. We continue the journey, arriving in the Grampians mid-morning and starting off with a stop at the Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Here you can learn about the Aboriginal culture and history of the area via the interactive displays. Take a walk on the grounds and look for kangaroos, emus and more.
For lunch you'll visit Halls Gap, the charming town in the heart of the Grampians, to grab a bite at one of the local cafes.
After lunch (own expense), we head deeper into the Grampians with a hike on the trails to the remarkable Jaws of Death/Balconies, as featured in the famous Japanese Animation ‘Princess Mononoke’ landscape scenes. Here, the majestic views over Victoria Valley will take your breath away.
Apart from the majestic mountain ranges, the Grampians also houses an array of splendid waterways across the gorgeous craggy landscape. This afternoon you will have the chance to admire one of Australia's inspiring waterfalls at MacKenzie or Silverband Falls.As the sun starts to sink, you'll jump back on the bus to head back to Melbourne, arriving back around 8:30pm.
