Explore the history and beauty of Grampians National Park on this full-day trip from Melbourne. Climb to the top of Boroka Lookout and other natural vista points for sweeping valley views, and bushwalk through the parklands to explore diverse habitats and spot local wildlife such as kangaroos. Learn about the area’s original inhabitants with a visit to Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre, and admire the cascading rush of waterfalls.
What to Expect
Grampians National Park offers visitors a chance to connect with diverse landscapes, native wildlife and aboriginal history. In the early morning, make your way to St Paul’s Cathedral in central Melbourne to meet your guide and board a comfortable air-conditioned minibus. Stop for morning tea and snacks midway through the 3-hour drive to the park.

Get your first introduction to the dramatic Grampians landscape at Boroka Lookout, where you can admire spectacular views of the eastern plains and Halls Gap Valley. Next, visit the Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre to learn about the area’s indigenous people. Explore interactive displays and maps that will help you appreciate the abundance of aboriginal rock art scattered throughout the park.

Stop in the nearby town of Halls Gap to purchase lunch, and then continue on to Reed Lookout for more impressive views. An easy 1.25-mile (2-km) hike will take you to Balconies Lookout, where you can see a rock formation shaped like an open mouth known as the ‘Jaws of Death.’ A moderately challenging hike through the surrounding landscape will lead you to the glorious cascade of MacKenzie Falls. Feel free to cool off with a dip in the pool at the base of the falls.

After a packed day of exploring, sit back and relax on the return drive to Melbourne. You’ll stop for dinner along the way (own expense), and be dropped off back at the original departure point in the late evening.

Please note: In the event that MacKenzie Falls is inaccessible due to weather, you will visit Silverband Falls instead.
