We approached the Grampians National Park from the southern end having just completed the Great Ocean Road and seeing the wonders of Australia's southern coastline. As we came closer to the national park we became aware of how big the peaks and rock formations of the area really are.
The Grampians Tourist Road lead us right into the heart of the national part where we quickly found ourselves amongst a number of 4wd and off road tracks. Using a map available from the information center at Dunkeld we explored the national park for a day. We found that unfortunately one day was not enough to see everything in the park.
We recommend you visit the Grampians National Park and travel among amazing mountain peaks, dramatic rock formations and see the beautiful waterfalls and panoramic views. Camping sites and picnic grounds are scattered throughout the park with a network of 4wd and walking tracks that make this wonderland really something special.
Pay a visit to the Cultural Centre in Hall's Gap where you can discover more about the area and its Aboriginal culture before visiting the formations of rocks and picturesque waterfalls.
Take a self guided walk through some of the Aboriginal rock art sites found in Bilimina Shelter and Manja Shelter or for a taste of yesteryear take a look around the former gold mining town of Mafeking.
