When completed in Spring 2021, the Grampians Peaks Trail will be a once-in-a-lifetime 13-day hike through the backbone of a mountain range famed for its dramatic scenery and Aboriginal heritage. Register today for Parks Victoria updates.

New sections of the trail are ready to explore, with the opening of four day walks in the north and south of the park. The featured day walks take in the epic landscape of Gariwerd, including Mount Stapylton, Lake Wartook, the lower waterfalls of Gar (Mount Difficult), and Signal Peak.

Also currently open is a three-day, two-night circuit hike from Halls Gap, which takes in popular highlights such as the Grand Canyon and the Pinnacle lookout as well as quieter spectacles such as the route to the summit of Mount Rosea.

On this circuit hike, your first night's camping is on specially raised tent pads at Bugiga Hiker Camp. Enjoy awesome views from this campground built exclusively for the use of Grampians Peaks Trail hikers.  

Your second night's camp is at Borough Huts Campground, a popular spot close to Fyans Creek and Lake Bellfield. If you would prefer to do a two day, one night hike, you can arrange for a pick up from Borough Huts.

The Grampians Peaks Trail is well signposted, but includes very steep sections and many obstacles. Only experienced and well-prepared walkers should attempt it.

Please register your hike at Brambuk The National Park and Cultural Centre and pick up an up to date map.
