The Grampians National Park. Victoria Australia


Grampians National Park. Victoria
Grampians National Park is the third largest in Victoria.  Aboriginal occupation of the area dates back over 5000 years. Over two thirds of Aboriginal art sites in Victoria are here, and Aboriginal people continue their strong association with the area.

Its spectacular scenery, colourful displays of wildflowers and a wide range of opportunities for recreation have made it one of the state’s most popular holiday destinations. Camping, fishing, four wheel driving and rock climbing are popular recreational activities in the area.

The Grampians are one of Victoria’s premier destinations for bushwalking, with over 90 walks available, varying in length and degree of difficulty. Cultural Rangers will be able to take you on a bush tucker walk or rock art tour. Visitors are advised to consult a ranger before embarking on one of the longer treks.

Natural highlights of the Grampians include Mackenzie Falls, the park’s largest of the many picturesque waterfalls. Within the 167 000 hectare park is a startling array of vegetation and wildlife, including 200 bird species and a quarter of Victoria’s native flora species.

Twenty of the park’s 800 plant species are not found anywhere else in the world.  The Grampians are renowned for striking displays of wildflowers each spring. The most popular section of the park is the Wonderland Range, which features Elephants Hide, Grand Canyon, Venus Baths and Silent Street.
