Getting here & around

Melbourne might feel like a distant memory by the time you're ensconced in a Grampians National Park eco-lodge looking out over the National Park's rocky crags, but you're just a three-hour drive away.

Destination: Grampians
Follow the Western Freeway through Ballarat to Ararat and from there choose between the Ararat Pomonal Road west towards Halls Gap, or continue on the Western Highway to Stawell and Horsham. Another option is to follow the Glenelg Highway from Ballarat to Dunkeld and Hamilton.

The popular Great Southern Touring Route passes through the Grampians region. This self-driven tour takes in some of Victoria's most spectacular scenery, following the Great Ocean Road, passing by the Shipwreck Coast, and winding up into the Grampians before continuing to Ballarat.

The Grampians are also a convenient stopping point for tourers travelling between Adelaide and Melbourne. Take in the world heritage Naracoorte Caves in South Australia, then cross the border into Victoria to Little Desert, the Grampians and Mt Arapiles.

Grampians by train
V/Line runs daily train services from Southern Cross Station direct to Ararat with connecting coach services to other parts of the region.
