There are rock climbing areas in many parks for all levels of ability. The best way to enjoy safe and sustainable rock climbing in a national park is with a guide. Climb with an expert at Mt Arapiles-Tooan, one of the world's best climbing and abseiling areas. Try a no-impact climb in Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park (in designated rock climbing areas only). Choose from a number of locations in Wilsons Promontory National Park at Tongue Point, Mount Oberon and Little Oberon. Or travel just outside Melbourne to scale the granite peaks in You Yangs Regional Park.
As with other recreational activities, rock climbing can have an impact on environmental and Aboriginal cultural heritage values.
