If the Grampians were a play it would be a drama of epic proportions 500 million years in the making. Fabulous escarpements, dramatic vistas punctuated by waterfalls, valleys and unique rock formations. Remnants of an even larger drama, volcanic eruptions, played out as little as 10,000 years ago. This is an oasis of mountains jutting dramatically from the surrounding plains, the Grampians offers exciting hiking amongst these magnificent mountains.

The local Aboriginal people call the area “Gariwerd”, meaning “pointed mountains”. With Auswalk you will soon see why as range after range dramatically unfolds into your view. Evocatively named rock formations punctuate the walking route. There’s Venus Baths, the Elephants Hide, Echo Cave, Silent Street, the Grand Canyon and the Pinnacle. The summit of Mt Rosea is a big tick item.

In spring time, the spray from picturesque waterfalls provide life-giving moisture for delicate fern gardens, and the area comes alive with masses of colourful wildflowers.

The numerous cliffs and valleys provide refuge for a huge variety of native animals – it is one of the best places to see large numbers of kangaroos, wallabies, deer, emu and colourful native birds in the wild.

This guided seven day walking holiday escorted by multi-award winning tour operator Auswalk Walking Holidays, focuses on Victoria’s high country, in the North East of the state.

As part of the enormous Australian Alps National Park, the area is covered in a blanket of snow from late May to November, but then the winter snows melt and flow as life-giving fresh water into Australia’s rivers.

The grasslands and boggy areas hold vast amounts of water, allowing a never-ending supply for alpine rivers and streams even during the driest of summers. The rolling plains become a cool refuge from the hot valleys below, supporting masses of spectacular wildflowers and extensive snow grass plains.

A true alpine experience. Highlights include the classic Razorback Ridge to Mount Feathertop, the second highest peak in Victoria. The undulating ridge offers panoramic views all the way. From here the route continues down to the picturesque village of Harrietville.

Another “big tick” will be the walk from Hotham to Falls Creek via the Cobungra Valley, Derrick Hut and Dibbins Hut. The historic huts circuit walk will delight history buffs and remote Mount Tabletop is a favourite place to sit and ponder the beauty of the region.
