Part A: The Grampians

 

The Grampians features some of Victoria’s most spectacular scenery and stunning native wildflowers. This trip is timed to see some wildflowers in bloom, and before the summer dries out the bush. The second week of NSW school holidays, but the Victorian schools will have already gone back, so we should avoid the crowds. Finishing on Saturday morning, this allows members two days to return home for the first week back at school.

We will start our trip in Hall’s Gap, the centre of the Grampians, where our base will be at the caravan park. The park provides a great range of accommodation options including tent sites, caravan sites with or without power, and cabins.

There is a wide range of activities available to Grampians visitors. Our activities will include short and half-day bush walks to spectacular lookouts and waterfalls, scenic drives and a visit to the Brambuk National Park and Aboriginal Culture Centre. Or do your own thing – stroll the village, go cycling or just relax with the view. Some 4WD scenic drives are planned, the tracks are rated medium in parts.

Subject to whatever Covid-19 restrictions are in force at the time. Sorry no pets.
