New Grampians Peaks Trail hikes open

New sections of the stunning Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park are ready to explore, with the opening of four day-hikes in the north and south of the park.

Part of the soon-to-be-completed Grampians Peaks Trail (GPT), the featured day-hikes take in the epic landscape of Gariwerd, including Mount Stapylton, Lake Wartook, the lower waterfalls of Gar (Mount Difficult), and Signal Peak.  Ranging in distance and difficulty, the hikes provide new experiences of this remarkable cultural landscape and heritage-listed national park that is home to an array of native animals and more than 800 species of indigenous plants.

The hikes also provide a taste of the full 160km GPT, a world-class experience that visitors will be able to tackle in sections or as an epic 13-day journey.  With the GPT to be completed in spring, bookings will open in the coming month for visitors planning to stay at the 11 hiker camps located along the trail.

Parks Victoria will be holding a series of community information sessions in June, which will be promoted shortly.  

Running along the spine of the 160,000-hectare national park, the GPT will provide visitors with an experience rich in the Aboriginal culture of the Jadawadjali and Djab Wurrung peoples, who have lived in these ranges for thousands of years.

Further information on the GPT and featured day hikes, including maps, is available from Brambuk: The National Park and Cultural Centre in Halls Gap, or from the Parks Victoria website.

By 2025, up to 34,000 walkers are set to experience the wonders of the national park each year, generating more than $6 million of economic benefit and tourism opportunities for the region.

The GPT is being developed with $20.2 million of State Government funding and $10 million from the Commonwealth Government through Horsham Rural City Council.
