What You Can Expect

Grampians National Park Small-Group Eco Tour from Melbourne

Grand Canyon

After hotel pickup, travel from Melbourne by air-conditioned mini coach, passing through the beautiful landscapes of the Western Plains. Stop along the way at the historic gold rush town of Ballarat for breakfast, and Moyston, famously the birthplace of Australian Rules Football.

On arrival at the national park, set out on a short bush walk to the Silverband Falls, followed by a visit to Halls Gap, where you might spot wild kangaroos, wallabies, or emus free-roaming around the town. After lunch at a local restaurant, follow the ‘Wonderland Walk’ to the Grand Canyon, one of the most spectacular sights in the Grampians Range.

Continue to the Reeds Lookout for views over Stringybark Forest and the Victoria Valley, before visiting the magnificent MacKenzie Falls. The final stop is at the Boroka Lookout, where you can admire views of Halls Gap and Lake Bellfield.

On the return journey to Melbourne, stop for dinner (own expense) and enjoy views of the city by night, before being dropped back at your hotel.

We took this tour recently and loved it. It is a long day but is well worth it. Our guide/driver was Leah and she was really pleasant and obliging. We had a number of stops along the way and saw some beautiful scenery, along with emus, wallabies, kangaroos, cockatoos, rosellas, a kookaburra and others. We arrived back in Melbourne around 9 pm having thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely recommend it.

Great small bus tour. Picnic lunch. Various walks not too strenuous and the guide Phil was very good and kept us all amused on the road trip to the Gramps and back. Pickup and drop off at the hotel too. A stop for dinner on the way back at a chippy at own expense made a good break in the journey back. Must be Phils aunty in the chippy!! Some fantastic photo opportunities on this trip so dont forget your camera.

We enjoyed the Grampians National Park Tour tremendously! The guide was on point since the pick up at the hotel. He gave up tips and a little history about Melbourne while driving. The tour includes breakfast and lunch, this is a whole day tour so we bought extra food at the lunch stop. Thank you!

For me this trip was well worth the money. It is a long day but you get to see a lot of beautiful places. Boroka and Reeds Lookout are truly beautiful while McKenzie Falls are spectacular. it is a long way down to the bottom of the falls so allow 15 -20 minutes to climb back out if you are in a time frame. Also if you are elderly or have limitations you may want to reconsider going down and instead they have a viewing area that is easier to walk to. well worth spending the day on this trip.

The tour was awesome. Joel, the guide, was very helpful, informative, and friendly. He hiked with us and kept checking if anyone had any difficulties. Hiking shoes would come in handy. We had super close encounter with kangaroos and wallabies. Saw emus on the way back too.

One of the less popular tourist attractions but definitely my favourite so far. Gorgeous scenery, several different stops with hikes and lookouts and waterfalls. The weather wasn't great for us but worked in our favour as we got most of the lookouts and hikes to ourselves. Tour guide knew his stuff and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know everyone on the tour. Highly recommend this tour!

We went on a rainy, windy day and still had a marvelous time. We saw mobs of kangaroos and our driver, Phil, was not only a wealth of information, but very accommodating in pointing out and pulling over to allow us full viewing and photo opportunities for the kangaroos, emus and birds. He also had reference books and his own collection of information on board that proved to be very useful. The scenery on the way to the Grampians and once you are there is beautiful. On a rainy day, the hike up to the Grand Canyon was a bit slick and the mist cut down on the view, I would only recommend that particular hike on a clear day. Hiking shoes came in very handy! It is a long day so be prepared to either sleep or have a book or something on your phone to do on the way home. I can only imagine how gorgeous the views would be be on a clear day!

As mentioned, it is a small group tour. Driver who was also our tour guide gave us very informative background about Grampians, Ballarat and some of the facts about Melbourne. I had enjoyed the day especially the walk in small part of the Grampians.

An excellent introduction to the Grampians with a chance to experience some of the highlights. The very cheerful and informative guide/driver kept a full minibus 24 involved. She had a very hardworking day with lots of driving, of course.
Be prepared for a long day and a limited choice of food in the evening in view of the late arrival back in town.
