If you love the great outdoors and enjoy being active, a holiday in Victoria’s picturesque Grampians National Park could be the perfect destination for you and your family this summer.
Located just 3 hours away from the Melbourne CBD, getting to the Grampians is quick and easy, leaving you more time to enjoy your holiday. A short drive away from the hustle and bustle of the city takes you to a place of magnificent natural beauty and wide open spaces that let you rejuvenate your body and mind.
Even if you don’t stay for long, the Grampians are great for short breaks or even just day trips. Here, you’re encouraged to take it easy and enjoy some time out from the pressures of every day life. If you’re a keen hiker or bushwalker, there are plenty of interesting and well maintained tracks you can explore, and they vary in difficulty.
You can explore the very popular Wonderland area, which sees thousands of visitors every year due to its close proximity to the town of Halls Gap. Enjoy an amazing view with your picnic lunch, relax by the river or seek out the many beautiful waterfalls that can be found in this region.
If you’re after something a little more challenging, head to the Southern Grampians, where amazing panoramic views are the reward for taking on the more difficult hikes. Visit Mount William – the highest peak in the national park – for breathtaking views and continue South to view some legendary Aboriginal rock art.
Visit the Grampians for a holiday with a difference, and let nature energise and invigorate your body and mind.
