Lovely day

I spent a lovely day in the Grampians, with Wildlife tours
First, the company is excellent and our guide was really interesting and helpful.
Secondly, the nature, the mountains ranges, panoramic views, waterfalls, was absolutely amazing
Thridly, we saw kangaroos and wallabies on our way and they were so cute 🙂
Finally, I 100% recommand this tour if you're coming in Melbourne!

Fantastic Tour

My wife and I recently joined this tour and had a fabulous time. This tour is fantastic value, we were going to rent a car however it's quite a journey from Melbourne and were not sure which sights were best to visit in one day. Our guide Simon was brilliant and the itinerary perfect. Highly recommend

Grampians

My husband, 7 year old daughter, and I all went on this tour. It was excellent and we were very pleased with our tour guide Rob. Rob gave us a lot of interesting pertinent information about various spots along the way to the Grampians. Once we arrived, we had plenty of time to see and do some highlights from this beautiful national park. I was especially pleased with how accommodating the tour company and our tour guide were to our young daughter. They went out of their way to make sure that she was able to participate in all the tour's activities and attractions.

The Grampians itself is a really lovely day tour from Melbourne. We were able to see a diversity of natural features and wildlife including beautiful waterfalls, scenic vistas, and kangaroos. It is a nice way to see more of Australia's beautiful countryside if you happen to be visiting Melbourne. Would definitely recommend!

Spectacular scenery and great crew on the Grampians Tour!

If you want to see the Grampians National Park in all it's glory then jumping on one of these tours is the way to go! Without the hassle of driving yourself there and back, the tour guides do all the hard work for you - even providing morning tea and lunch! The day is filled with short walks leading to amazing views of the surrounding scenery. Native flora and fauna galore along with the odd kangaroo or emu! MacKenzie Falls being the highlight for me! Thanks to the crew Dave C and Dwayne for providing lots of interesting knowledge on the history of the area - and for an awesome day out! Go Wildlife!

Cheers, Kelly, HHQ.

Itinerary

  • Why Visit The Grampians?

    In one day we take you from Melbourne to experience the highlights of this breathtaking National Park.

    You will feel as though you have stepped back in time as you marvel at the Ancient Landscape with rugged mountain ranges and spectacular sandstone ridges. With an experienced guide leading you through this incredible scenery, you will come away from the tour with a new understanding of the countryside and history of the region.

    grampians national park tour

    Breath taking scenery at every turn.

     

  • Grampians Tour Itinerary | Morning Tea in Country Victoria

    As you leave the city behind you we travel the 250km’s west, through countryside steeped in Victorian Goldrush history. This journey is broken up with a stop in one of the many quaint towns en-route to learn of the mining history and enjoy a morning tea / coffee.

  • Grampians Tour Itinerary | Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre

    Once we have arrived in the picturesque National Park, we head to Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre, where you can explore and see first hand the creation stories that make up the lore of this diverse landscape. Venture around the cultural centre to spot wallabies, emus and maybe even echidnas in the bush. Come away with a deeper understanding of the significance of Gariwerd for the Indigenous people.

  • Grampians Tour Itinerary | Lunch in Halls Gap

    Before heading ‘up the mountain’ we relax in the picturesque town of Halls Gap, right in the heart of the Grampians National Park to have lunch, all included in the tour price and diet requirements such as Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten free can be catered for with advance notice.

  • Grampians National Park Tour Itinerary | Reeds Lookout & The Balconies

    Reeds Lookout affords sweeping views down to Lake Wartook and out over the Victoria Valley and the Mount Difficult Range.

    We then enjoy a hike along the shady path through the gumtrees and fascinating rock formations out to The Balconies, here you will see the famous ‘Jaws of Death’ with majestic views and scenery, featured in the Japanese Animation ‘Princess Mononoke’.

    grampians national park tour

    Incredible hikes and scenery.

  • Grampians National Park Tour Itinerary | Hike to the base of Mackenzie Falls

    Probably the most famous waterfall in Victoria, we hike down to the base and back to marvel at the sheer amount of water and to feel the fresh spray in the air.

    The hike is about 250 steps to the base and back and if you prefer an easier flat walk out over the top of the falls this is absolutely fine!

    If ever Mackenzie Falls were closed to the public this stop would be substituted for a peaceful hike to Silverband Falls.

    grampians tour

    Visit the majestic Mackenzie or Silverband waterfalls.

  • Grampians National Park Tour Itinerary | Boroka Lookout

    A picture stop at the marvellous Boroka lookout perfectly depicts the incredible scenery. Depending on the weather and visibility we may alternatively head to Lake Bellfield to walk out along the damn and feel dwarfed in-between the two mountain ranges.

    grampians national park tour

    Walk to the breath-taking Boroka lookout or Lake Bellfield.

  • Grampians Tour Itinerary | Kangaroo and Wildlife Spotting

    Fun fact – no one in Halls Gap needs to own a lawn mower, because come evening there are kangaroos everywhere, out nibbling on the grass!

    While it is very likely that you will spot a range of Aussie birds including kookaburras and emus, we are certain that you will not leave the Grampians without seeing a kangaroo.

    We often are also treated to the sights of echidnas and wallabies, remember there would not be any feeding of wild animals, but make sure your camera battery is charged!

    grampians national park tour

    Wildlife encounters guaranteed.

  • Return to Melbourne

    Eventually we must head back to the city, the 3hr journey from the Grampians is broken up with a stop along the way to purchase dinner (own expense).

    Relax and reflect on a day of discovery, you will be in Melbourne by about 8.30pm with drop off back to your original pick up location or to public transport links.
