Adventure is just around the corner on this hiking day tour to The Grampians from Melbourne. Escape the city and enjoy the great outdoors during hikes that will lead you to rock formations, famous escarpments, secret waterfalls and awe inspiring lookouts.

Itinerary

This famous jagged cliff face is quite the sight and there will be plenty of time to soak up the views and capture some amazing photos. Once we return, we will stop for a delicious cafe or bakery lunch before the drive up to MacKenzie Falls. Feel free to dip your toes in the icy mountain water to refresh your feet. Our next stop is the picturesque Boroka Lookout where you will be able to experience stunning views of Halls Gap, Lake Bellfield and Mt. William mountain ranges. We return to the delightful local village of Halls Gap where we will reveal one of the local kangaroo’s favourite hangout spots before making the journey back to Melbourne.
