VIC West - Grampians National Park

Renowned for rugged mountain ranges and stunning wildflower displays, Grampians National Park is one of the State's most popular holiday destinations. Declared in 1984, the 167,000 ha park is a home for almost a third of Victoria's plant species. Management of the park requires a careful balance between tourism and conservation of the environment.


The 260 km drive from Melbourne along the Western or Glenelg Highways takes about 3.5 hours. There are approaches to Halls Gap (Vic Roads Touring Guide 56-A4) via Stawell, Ararat, Horsham or Dunkeld.
