The Grampians National Park

The Grampians National Park or ‘Gariwerd’ as the original custodians of the area new it, is a remarkable landscape of jagged mountain ranges. Vast cracking, tilting and lifting has exposed the layers of the earth and features wonderful examples of high quality sandstone.

The park is a wonderland for native flora and fauna. Given the chance to go off road the chance of some very private encounters with our most favourite native animals increases dramatically. Kangaroos, Wallabies, Emu, Echidna and many other iconic species can be found off the main roads.

Another remarkable feature of this region is the amount of Aboriginal rock art left by the various clams that bordered the region. The best sites are still accessible by 4 wheel drive but are well worth the mission to find a place that will transport you in time. More recently, white settlement in the area has brought a lot of pain and suffering to the Aboriginal people as was common in many places during those times. While visiting a cultural centre, memories and stories of those times by these original people often give an enlightening perspective to curious minds on the topic.

Enjoy this region with our High Country tours in combination with the Great Ocean Road or explore it more thoroughly on a two day journey to discover the Rock Art and Wildlife alone. Either way your experience in the Grampians, combined with a memorable evening at one of Australia’s best rural retreats the ‘Royal Mail Hotel’ in Dunkeld, is sure to delight on many levels.
