Grampians Iconic 4WD experience upgrades

The project 

 This project is being delivered on the country of the Jardwadjali and Djab wurrung people.

The spectacular Grampians National Park offers a range of opportunities for those who love 4WDing, camping and bushwalking.

As part of this project, three sites popular with people 4WDing in the park are being upgraded - Red Rock Picnic Area, Strachans Campground and Ingleton Springs Picnic Area. Picnic facilities and track surfaces at each location will be improved.

Project benefits


The upgrades will make it safer and easier for a wide range of people to enjoy the picnic areas on a popular 4WD route in the park.


 Improved carparking and paths will help to protect vegetation by keeping people on designated paths and tracks and in the picnic area.
