Destination Description

 

The Grampians is a national park located 260 km west of Melbourne, it was listed on the Australian National Heritage List in 2006 because of its magnificent sandstone mountain ranges and indigenous rock arts. The national park has many spectacular sandstone ridges and it offers a wide selection of bushwalking trails of varying difficult level and duration. Although it is best for visiting in spring when heavenly wildflowers blossom across the mountains, as opposed to summer time when it’s very warm. However the Mckenzie Falls provides visitors with an oasis to soothe and relax under balmy weather condition. With major look-out spots and attractions, such as: The Pinnacle and The Balconies. The Grampians is a perfect location for bushwalking and stunning scenery.
