What to expect

Departing Melbourne at around 8.00am, you will pass through Western Plains of Victoria on your way to historic Ballarat. Ballarat boomed in the 1850s with the widespread discovery of gold in the district. Learn a little about history as you enjoy some morning tea here at the site of the infamous Eureka Rebellion.

Continuing on your drive through the picturesque western volcanic plains, you pass through the town of Moyston, the birthplace of Australian Rules Football. Then, you'll arrive at the foot of the Grampians Range or Gariwerd in the local Jardwadjali language. On arrival, you can immerse yourself in the Australian bush with a gentle stroll to the delightful Silverband Falls. Next, you'll make your way into the township of Halls Gap for your included lunch. Keep an eye open for the local kangaroos and abundant birdlife that can be seen in the main street.

After lunch, head to the Wonderland Turntable for a short hike to the Grand Canyon. Marvel at the high rising rock walls, crisscrossed with layering and fault lines, showcasing the area’s unique geology. Stunning panoramas await at Reeds Lookout which overlooks the towering Stringybark Forest and Victoria Valley. The next stop is MacKenzie Falls. No trip to the Grampians would be complete without a visit to these majestic falls. Marvel as water cascades down over the rocks, set in a gorge surrounded by eucalyptus forest. Walk the Bluff trail along the top of the cliffs to the panoramic viewpoint of the falls or journey down the stairs to the base of the steep gorge and gaze up at this truly impressive waterfall.

Your next port of call is the Boroka Lookout. Boroka provides panoramic views of the surrounding region overlooking the town of Halls Gap and further afield to Lake Bellfield and beyond. You then make your way back into Halls Gap for a final opportunity to spot some of the area’s wild kangaroo population before beginning your return to Melbourne. A dinner stop is made on the return journey to Melbourne.
