Guide to the Grampians
You can't miss the Grampians, a majestic mountain range and forest rising out of flat farmland in Victoria's west. The region's national parks are home to a huge array of native plants and animals, adventure and a rich and continuing Aboriginal history.

Rising from the flat pastoral land of Victoria's west are the Grampians – a playground for adventurers and a haven for food and wine lovers, with a fascinating Aboriginal story to tell. The Grampians National Park is home to an incredible mountain landscape dotted with small towns such as Dunkeld, Stawell, Halls Gap, Wartook Valley and Beaufort. With so much to do, it's no wonder this nature lover's paradise is a popular weekend escape among Melburnians.
