The first stop on your adventurous two-day escape to the spectacular Grampians National Park is the Victorian era boomtown of Ballarat.
Guests can choose to visit Sovereign Hill, an outdoor museum that transports you back to 1850’s gold rush fever. Alternatively visit the award-winning Ballarat Wildlife Park renowned for up-close encounters with Australian native animals including Victoria’s premier koala experience.
From there whisk you away to Dunkeld, a picturesque town nestled at the foothills of the stunning twin peaks of mounts Abrupt and Sturgeon in the southern Grampians National Park. Spot kangaroos while walking the arboretum or perhaps forage through the celebrated kitchen garden of the Royal Mail Hotel, your dining and rest spot for the night. This evening you will be treated to an envelope-pushing dinner you will never forget at one of Australia’s finest restaurants.
Day two brings with it a world of potential. Explore Brambuck Aboriginal Culture Centre and perhaps trek up to the majesty of Mackenzie Falls before a picnic lunch. With several hikes on offer, pick how hard you want to work and then wash it all down with a well-earned sparkling wine at Seppelt Great Western winery en route back to Melbourne.
