Cycling & mountain biking

Explore the Grampians region's hard-to-reach nooks and crannies on two wheels, with plenty of shady bike paths for those seeking gentle cycles, or invigorating mountain bike adventures through the national park by night.


Fasten your helmet and cycle along designated paths that wind past cellar doors, lavender farms or olive groves.

Cruise alongside Lake Hamilton and the Wimmera River, along the valley floor at Halls Gap, through the main streets of Dunkeld and other towns and villages across the region.

Hire a bike from the Ararat and Grampians Visitor Information Centre and discover the many cycle paths in and around Ararat.

Ride through Grampians National Park then take a short walk to a range of lookouts atop ancient mountain peaks or waterfalls.

Kit out the whole family with their own wheels and take the bike path between Halls Gap and Lake Bellfield. Or make your way along the scenic Natimuk–Mount Arapiles rail trail, a 10-kilometre off-road recreational trail linking Natimuk to Mount Arapiles.

Road cyclists seeking more energetic pursuits should hit the great regional loops between Halls Gap, Stawell, Ararat and Great Western.

Mountain biking

Not all the challenges in the Grampians are uphill. Make the most of the region's narrow bush trails for some exhilarating mountain biking.

Combine the thrill of freewheeling with a short walk and study of environmental features. Tracks provide various grades and terrains for all skill levels and are suitable for mountain and hybrid bikes.

Hire bikes or bring your own and go exploring at your own pace. Contact Brambuk – The National Park and Cultural Centre at Halls Gap or at any of the local visitor information centres for tips on local tracks and trails.
