The Grampians (Gariwerd)

Home to an Abundance of Native Wildlife

Though recognizable by rugged mountain ranges, stunning waterways and rolling hills, if you take a closer look, Grampians National Park, called “Gariwerd” by local Aboriginal Peoples, holds some of Victoria’s most diverse ecological life and cultural significance.

There is evidence to suggest the Djab Wurrung and Jardwardjali people have lived in the Park for 22,000 years, and it serves importance for many creation stories from Aboriginal communities in south-western Victoria.

The region is home to hundreds of rare or threatened flora and fauna, nestled between massive sandstone mountain ranges, rolling hills, and wildflower diversity. Over 80% of the state’s rock art sites can be found within the region, alongside native wildlife like koalas, kangaroos and wallabies.

Where We Go

Hall’s Gap

As the epicenter of The Grampians, Hall’s Gap is the closest you’ll get to a city escape from the National Park. Here, you’ll find the bulk of accommodation and discover mouthwatering dishes to pair with a perfect cup o’ joe at several small restaurants and cafes. Just outside, Lake Bellfield offers panoramic mountainous views, while Brambuk provides the resources to learn more about the Park’s Aboriginal history.

McKenzie Falls

At 40m tall, McKenzie Falls is the biggest waterfall in the Grampians, and one of the biggest in all of Victoria. Watch the water cascade into the deep below from the viewing platform or, if you’re feeling brave, take the 260 steps to the bottom—trust us, it’s worth the workout.

Boroka Lookout

What can’t you see from this lookout? From the village of Hall’s Gap to stunning Lake Bellfield and the breathtaking mountain ranges of Wonderland and Mt. William—the highest point of the Grampians—this lookout has everything you could ask for in an Insta-worthy shot.

Reed Lookout and the Balconies

Facing a western direction, the Reed Lookout is the perfect place to watch a stunning sunset, with views of Victoria Valley, Victoria Range, Serra Range, Lake Wartook and the Mt. Difficult Range. Visitors can head up to the fire tower to overlook the interior of the Park, or head one kilometer down to the Balconies Lookout for a unique vantage point of the jaw-like rock slab formation of the Victoria Range.
