Overview

Events

Time your trip with local events to sample the best of the Grampians region's food and wine, arts, sports and outdoor lifestyle. Gear up for the excitement of the Stawell Gift, raise a toast at the Grape Escape, frock up for the Avoca Cup, and get a feel for the region's creative side at arts, gardening and community events throughout the year.

The famous Stawell Gift

Come at Easter for the famous Stawell Easter Gift. Held every year since 1878, the meet is renowned internationally as a leading professional foot race. For amateur runners, the annual Run The Gap in May offers a range of track lengths, taking in the Grampians National Park and stunning Lake Bellfield.

For those looking for some more sporty competition, there's plenty going on throughout the year, from cycling events and fun runs to motocross, horseracing and water skiing.

Local flavours

Gourmands ahoy. Bring an appetite and make a beeline for the Grampians Grape Escape Food and Wine Festival in May. Join in the festivities of this wonderful celebration set against the stunning backdrop of the Grampians National Park. And with master classes, wine tastings and twilight dining events happening throughout the year, there's no shortage of foodie fun in the Grampians calendar. 

Keep the good times rolling long after you get home. Fill your basket with locally grown produce and gourmet goodies at farmers markets on your back through the region.

The track

Get your glad rags on for the Avoca Cup in October, and enjoy the fantastic food, wine and track-side entertainment at one of country Victoria's largest spring racing events. Other popular racing events include the Hamilton Cup, the Dunkeld Cup and Hamilton's Party With The Ponies.
