Grampians Peaks Trail - Important information update

Grampians Peaks Trail - Important information updates
The most reliable source of water on Grampians Peaks Trail are the serviced water tanks located at trailheads and road access points/ road crossings.  These tanks are marked on the topographic map and are serviced regularly by Parks Victoria. This water is untreated so may require further treatment by walkers.
Water at hike-in campgrounds, if available, is generally supplied for extra cooking and hand washing supply at camp and is untreated. When rainfall is minimal, water supply at hike-in campgrounds cannot be guaranteed. It is important that walkers fill up at serviced trailheads or road crossings prior to undertaking each overnight section of the walk.
