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.
Hike during the day and camp 1-night under the stars to experience a little bit more of what the Grampians Peaks Trail has to offer.

If you only have one vehicle, contact a Grampians Peaks Trail Licensed Tour Operator for transport services or visit Brambuk the National Park and Cultural Centre for other pick-up or hiking options.
