It was a short walk to the Balconies which offered exquisite views at sunset... but I'm biased because once we arrived her got down on one knee and proposed! Highly recommended!

This was an easy walk to the balconies, flat and through bushland. At the end is the lookout. People had climbed over the barrier to take photos which was very dangerous. It's nice, but suggest prioritising the Pinnacle and McKenzie Falls

The Balconies is a major highlight of the Grampians. Get that ideal photo for your social media account and brag to your friends ;)

Like all the view points in the Grampians the balconies offer a magnificent view over the landscape. A short walk but very worthwhile doing.

From the Reeds Lookout car park, you walk about 1 km or so to The Balconies look out, which is a beautiful rock formations that resembles its name. Worth the walk & the photo opportunity if you are daring enough to go out into the...More

Fantastic views as soon as you get to the lookout. The path there is sealed, and quiet accessible - an easy walk for all fitness levels. There are seats along the path so you can have a rest if needed. To get to the actual...More
