National parks & reserves
Be spellbound by the beauty and diversity of the Grampians' national and state parks, forests and reserves, renowned for their rugged mountain ranges, abundant wildlife and spectacular wildflower displays.
Lose yourself in the grandeur of the spectacular Grampians National Park. Climb to the top of towering sandstone ridges, wander through native forest and fern gullies, and make your way to see ancient Aboriginal rock art sites.
Home to 970 native plant species, 200 species of birds and abundant native animals, the Grampians National Park is the fourth largest national park in Victoria. The park is made up of four precipitous and spectacular ranges formed millions of years ago when the sandy sediments lifted and tilted to form the distinctive landscape seen today.
Little Desert and the Wimmera
Explore the volcanic plains in the southern Grampians at Mt Eccles National Park and then discover the changing landscapes of the Wimmera, Victoria's western region. Inhale the scent of spectacular wildflowers and look out for the elusive Mallee Fowl at Little Desert National Park, or get set for some of the best rock climbing in the world on the dramatic rock formations of Mt Arapiles-Tooan State Park.
