Parks Victoria is now taking bookings for the new Grampians Peaks Trail which opens to the public mid-November.

The spectacular 160km track is a challenging 13-day/12-night hiking experience through a variety of terrain in the Grampians National Park (Gariwerd).

Starting at Mt Zero in the north and heading south, the trail passes over the summit of Gar (Mt Difficult), continues through Halls Gap with hiking highlights including Redman Bluff, Major Mitchell Plateau and Mt Abrupt before reaching Dunkeld in the south.

Stay at unique hike-in campgrounds along the trail, climb dramatic mountain peaks with panoramic views and hike along rugged rocky ridgelines.

Experience a rich diversity of flora and fauna and the ancient Aboriginal culture of Gariwerd.

The Grampians Peaks Trail runs from the northern point of the Grampians National Park (near Dadswells Bridge) to the southern point of the park (at Dunkeld).

It is located in Western Victoria, a three-hour (260km) drive from Melbourne and a five-hour (460km) drive from Adelaide.

The central Grampians is easily accessed from the villages of Halls Gap and Wartook and is a scenic day trip from the regional towns of Hamilton, Horsham, Stawell and Ararat.
