Walking & hiking

Lace up your boots and get set to explore the Grampians region's spectacular natural beauty on foot. Move through some of the most awe-inspiring wilderness in the state on a short gentle stroll, or settle in for a full- or multi-day adventure.

Test your stamina with a hike through the Grand Canyon up to The Pinnacle or trek through heathy woodland to stunning views of Mount Abrupt. For something a bit less strenuous, wander out to spectacular Mackenzie Falls or revel in sweeping views of Victoria Valley from The Balconies, located just 30 minutes from Reed Lookout.
