Grampians National Park is part of the Gariwerd Aboriginal cultural landscape. Parks Victoria respects the deep and continuing connection that Traditional Owners have to these lands and waters, and we recognise their ongoing role in caring for Country.
For people who enjoy an outdoor adventure but don’t have time to do the full 13-day Grampians Peaks Trail, breaking it up into smaller 3-day hikes is a great way to challenge yourself, build-up long distance hiking skills and experience the spectacular living cultural landscape of Gariwerd. Return again at your leisure to complete more sections of the trail. You can also add individual overnight and 3-day hike itineraries together to create your preferred hiking adventure.
Get started by choosing from our range of suggested 3-day hiking itineraries below. They are arranged in order from north to south.
The Grampians Peaks trail is best completed in a north-to-south direction. This allows you to experience the most dramatic views on your hike as they reveal in the landscape. It also allows the best availability to book your preferred dates at hike-in campgrounds along he trail as multi-day hikers are travelling in the one direction.
The Grampians Peaks Trail is free for anyone to walk on it, no charge. The 11 hike-in campgrounds included in these 3-day hike itineraries have a charge, as do all bookable campsites in parks. These hike-in campgrounds are in very remote locations, you're not near a busy road or carpark, so you feel the reward of being deep inside the national park. They have been built with a good level of amenity that is well designed, sympathetic to the landscape and sustainable. As such, they are priced higher for the value they provide. The price for a standard tent pad for a 3-day/2-night hike is $95.40 ($47.70 p/person for two people sharing). That's roughly $47 per night ($24 p/person if sharing) in camping fees for these unique, well-equipped hike-in campgrounds. These fees contribute towards the operation and maintenance of this unique hiking experience and helps to protect the enviornmental values of this heritage-listed national park.
When researching your hiking adventure, read the important Grampians Peaks Trail Plan and Prepare document. And when the time comes, before you set-off, visit Brambuk the National Park and Cultural Centre in Halls Gap for topographical maps and speak to knowledgeable staff for the latest park information.
