GRAMPIANS PEAKS TRAIL

HIKE TO NEW HEIGHTS IN AN ANCIENT LANDSCAPE

More than a decade in the making, the full Grampians Peaks Trail is destined to become one of Australia’s iconic walks. It runs down the spine of Western Victoria’s heritage-listed Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park from Mount Zero in the north to the southernmost point at Dunkeld. With our unique itineraries, you don’t have to tackle the entire 160km and you’ll still be rewarded with some of the best hiking trails and panoramic views in Australia.

Gariwerd has its own special energy. You can feel it when you journey through the ancient and rugged landscape, which showcases countless spectacular vistas, dramatic peaks and changing landscapes – from jagged rock to lush green forest. The trail extends over the ancestral lands of the Djab Wurrung and Jadawadjali people, and Parks Victoria has worked with traditional owners to guide the trail alignment and shape visitor information and stories.

Grampians Route Map

Halls Gap

The delightful township of Halls Gap is the gateway to the Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park and offers breathtaking views of the sandstone mountains. It’s used as a base to access the many hikes in area and has a good selection of accommodation, eateries and shopping for any supplies you might need. There’s inquisitive wildlife too, including emus, wallabies and birds.

Pinnacle Lookout

The iconic Pinnacle Lookout is one of the most spectacular vantage points in the Grampians. The rocky outcrop, perched on the very edge of the range, offers magnificent views over the Grampians and Mt William.

Mount William (Duwil)

Rising to 1167m, Mount William (Duwil) is the Grampians’ tallest peak. It provides incredible 360-degree views of mountain ranges and open plains. As you make your way to the summit, tall eucalyptus trees on the lower slopes give way first to dwarfed trees and then to low, windswept bushes and grasses.

Dunkeld

The picturesque township of Dunkeld offers striking views of Mount Sturgeon and Mount Abrupt. Attractions include the 18-hectare Arboretum and the acclaimed Royal Mail Hotel, a destination in itself.

Mount Sturgeon (Wurgarri)

Mount Sturgeon (Wurgarri) is 582m and the first peak at the very southernmost edge of the Grampians range. From the summit there are wonderful views of the Serra Range to the north and Dunkeld in the south.

 

The Piccaninny (Bainggug)

On the way to the summit (448m) of The Piccanninny (Bainggug) you’ll walk through picturesque open forests that showoff colourful wildflowers in spring. From the summit there are breathtaking views of Mount Abrupt (Mud-Dadjug) and Dunkeld.

Mount Abrupt (Mud-Dadjug)

There is a steep climb to the iconic summit of Mount Abrupt, the most imposing peak in the south. It offers fantastic views back along the Serra range northwards and south to Dunkeld.

Mount Stapylton (Gunigalg)

Mount Stapylton (Gunigalg) is 518m above sea level and the view from the summit is spectacular, taking in much of the park and surrounding plains. On the descent through the Stapylton Amphitheatre you’ll see the spectacular red cliffs of one of Victoria’s tallest and steepest former rock-climbing sites, the Taipan Wall.

Lake Wartook

The lookout (829m) at Lake Wartook is one of the highest points in the Mount Difficult range. It offers incredible views with Mount William and the Black ranges in the distance and the evocatively named Asses Ears Mountains and Wartook Basin below.

Mount Zero (Mura Mura)

Mount Zero (Mura Mura) is the northernmost mountain of the Grampians range. The peak was named by Thomas Mitchell in 1836 because the temperature was 32 Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celcius) at dawn on the morning of the ascent.
