Due to ongoing bushfire activity (February 2024), parts of Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park remain closed for public safety. Visit Parks Victoria's website for updated conditions. For information about bushfires and warnings visit www.emergency.vic.gov.au.
Traditionally known as Gariwerd, this region is home to the largest number of significant and ancient Aboriginal rock art paintings and shelters in southern Australia. A visit to Brambuk – The National Park and Cultural Centre will help you get the most of your trip to these rock shelters.
The Grampians draws walkers from around the world. Hike to the highest peak within the Grampians, Mount William, or explore the plethora of walks around Halls Gap and the Wonderland Range. Views from the Pinnacle are famous, but the steep walk should only be attempted by the fit. If you’re an experienced walker you’ll enjoy the unique challenge of the park’s overnight hikes, including the recently opened Grampians Peaks Trail.
There are more relaxing pursuits to enjoy in the Grampians, too. Go fishing, canoeing or kayaking at Lake Wartook, Lake Bellfield and Moora Moora Reservoir or one of the park’s many other streams and creeks.
Grampians National Park is part of the Gariwerd Aboriginal cultural landscape.
