Checklist - the Grampians

OK, the Grampians National Park and region has a bit going on..... Yes, it is a national park but there are a few things to do here including walks and hikes and once you sample some of the space you discover there is more and more and before you know it - you have to come back again.

To give you a little bit of background - The Grampians National Park covers an area of approximately 1,672 square kilometers (646 square miles). The highest peak in the Grampians National Park is Mount William, which stands at an elevation of 1,167 meters (3,829 feet) above sea level. The park is home to diverse plant and animal species. If you wish to hike it from point to point (north to south or vv) then allow 13 days/12 nights and you can cover the 166km/100 mile distance on the Grampians Peaks Trail.

It features over 900 species of native plants, including many unique and rare species. Wildlife such as kangaroos, emus, koalas, echidnas, and various bird species can be found in the park.

The Grampians National Park is of great significance to the local Indigenous communities, particularly the Djab Wurrung and Jardwadjali peoples. It contains numerous rock art sites and cultural landmarks, showcasing the rich Indigenous cultural heritage of the area.

The park offers a range of visitor facilities, including campgrounds, picnic areas, walking tracks, lookouts PLUS lots of activities and fun options for everyone.

That is why, to help you, we have created a checklist. It doesn't cover everything - but it is a start to help you discover the Grampians.

If you need some extra help with planning your visit to the Grampians - visit our Plan your Visit or maybe you need everything planned for you and would like the perfect package - then check out our Accommodation Packages page.

Although we have not included all the places you can eat and drink while visiting I feel it is very important to mention another "to do" that really should have been on the checklist - and that is grab an ice cream. Even if it is winter you will see

people lining up to enjoy a delicious yummy ice cream with two great locations supplying these treats - Coolas Ice Creamery and the Gelato Guys.
