The day begins in Melbourne, where we’ll pick you up and make our way to the Grampians National Park. On the way, we’ll stop off in the quaint town of Beaufort, where you can refuel with a morning tea.
Afterwards, we’ll dive straight into the history of the region at the Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Here, you can learn more about the fascinating past of the park and discover some of the local Aboriginal communities that still live here today.
For lunch, we head right into the heart of the park to the charming township of Halls Gap, set against the breath-taking backdrop of the Grampians mountains. Here you can explore the town and grab a bite to eat at one of the local cafes.
Then it is time for a walk to the Boroka Lookout or Lake Bellfield, where you can marvel at the magnificent views before we check out the Balconies Lookout.
Next up, it is time for some waterfall action. We’ll visit the spectacular MacKenzie Falls for a walk to the base of the gushing waterfalls. Victoria’s most famous waterfalls offer a tranquil spot to enjoy the stunning bush scenery.
All the while, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for local wildlife, including kangaroos, emus, and a vibrant selection of colourful birdlife.
As the tour comes to a close, we’ll make our way back to Melbourne, stopping on the way for you to grab some dinner.
