Facts

  • The Grampians Peaks Trail connects some of the Grampians’ most spectacular peaks, from the massive sandstone outcrops around Mount Stapylton in the north to Mud-dadjug (Mount Abrupt) in the south.
  • It can be done as the full 160 km 13 day/12 night hike, or in shorter sections with more than 20 different trail options for walkers to enjoy.
  • There are 11 bookable hike-in campgrounds providing a remote wilderness experience with water and toilets available.
  • Most of the trail is a Grade 4 walk with steep climbs and descents, while some sections of the walk are slightly flatter and easier at around a Grade 3 walk. There are also more challenging Grade 5 sections in the central Grampians just south of Halls Gap.

There is no cost to walk the trail however campground fees apply for overnight hikers. And all walkers must bring their own food and equipment and take their rubbish with them.

Regardless of the itinerary selected, the trail provides walkers an experience rich in the Aboriginal culture of the Jadawadjali and Djab Wurrung peoples, who have lived in these ranges they call Gariwerd for thousands of years. Hikers will pass dramatic rocky peaks and outcrops, ravines, waterfalls, forests and lakes, a landscape home to unique native animals and abundant plant life. Interpretation signage along the trail will help hikers learn more about the area’s Aboriginal cultural heritage and provide information about the national park’s incredible environmental values.
