What to Expect
Depart the Melbourne CBD passing over the mighty Westgate Bridge as you make your way through the western suburbs of Melbourne bound for western Victoria. Passing through the Victorian goldfields of the 1850's the tour stops for a short break in the quaint country town of Beaufort for morning tea.
As you approach the Grampians National Park, you gain an appreciation for what makes them so spectacular as the giant mountain ranges appear from the surrounding flat plains. Taking pride of place as the highest point of the Grampians, Mt William will be right in the middle of your first glimpse of the park.
You will visit Brambuk Aboriginal Culture Center. Learn about the art, heritage and the 6 seasons of the Grampians as described by the local indigenous. An abundance of kangaroos rest in the areas around the center too!
Making your way into the heart of the park you will enter the small township of Halls Gap. Here you will enjoy a picnic lunch with snacks set in between two of the most spectacular ranges of the Grampians before the tours drives up into the Mt DIfficult range. Take in the breathtaking views of the plains of western Victoria from Boroka Lookout before taking a walk out to the geologicial icon known as the Balconies which was featured in the Japanese Animation 'Princess Mononoke.' The final stop for the day will take you to the base of the majestic of Mackenzie Falls. Follow a series of over 250 stairs to the bottom to cool off and relax.
As the sun begins to set, keep an eye out for large mobs of Kangaroos that call the area home before returning to Melbourne.
