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 central Melbourne to meet your guide and board a comfortable air-conditioned minibus. Stop to purchase morning tea and snacks midway through the drive to the park.

Get your first introduction to the dramatic Grampians landscape at Halls Gap Valley then head straight to the Boroka Lookout, where you can admire spectacular views of the eastern plains. A moderately challenging hike through the surrounding landscape leads 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.

Another short hike takes you to Balconies Lookout, where you can see a rock formation shaped like an open mouth known as the ‘Jaws of Death.’

Stop in the nearby town of Halls Gap to purchase lunch, and then continue on to Reed Lookout for more impressive views.

Finally, 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.

After a packed day of exploring, sit back and relax on the return drive to Melbourne. 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.

The van seat was not very comfortable and could not recline to take a break. The tour was overall good. Kids were excited
icon Response from Host , Jun 2019
Hi, and thank you for your review! We are glad to hear your kids were excited and you liked the tour. While we aim to be transparent in our vehicle sizes and do not claim them to have the highest comfort level, we do find that the small bus offers many advantages, such as access to areas big buses could not enter, and having a very high safety record. It is also a great vehicle for the driver-guide to be able to connect with a small group. However, the flip side of this is, that these smaller buses do not offer the reclining seats afforded by a coach. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope to see you on our tours again!

A good opportunity to see the Grampian Mountains. However, in my opinion, a lot of time was spent on a less interesting walk in the forest before reaching the mountains. It would be better to have more trekking in the mountains themselves. The guide was good

It was OK, but I'd like to spend more time in walking and seeing more waterfalls. Also, the bus was very old and with bad stereo system - we could barely hear our guide.

Tina, the driver/guide was fantastic. We went on a 38°C day and she entertained us well throughout the journey. The scenery on each look out point is beyond breathtaking. Warning: A moderate level of fitness is required for McKenzie Falls. Other attractions just involve walking on leveled ground, but for a certain amount of distance. Remember to bring Gatorade to hydrate yourself! Cheers.
