Reviews of Grampians National Park

A National Park situated in the tiny state of Victoria, the Grampians National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty, a mix of rocky canyons and eucalyptus forests.

My suggestion:
In summer, be aware of the danger of forest fires (bush fires), which occur frequently, grow rapidly and cause great loss of life.
My review

Having lived in Melbourne for nearly a year, I've had the chance to explore the Grampians National Park several times, in different seasons. It definitely has some of the most beautiful hikes in the region to offer, situated at the heart of what Australians call the bush. I particularly remember climbing the Pinnacle, with its 360° views over the surrounding National Park, at the summit of a cliff which plunges into a eucalyptus forest 300m below.

The charming town of Halls Gap, where I was staying, is the perfect base from which to explore the Grampians Natural Park, and offers numerous, charming cafes and restaurants and many historical buildings.

It's a must for the itinerary of any trip to Australia, or for anyone who's thinking of staying in Melbourne long-term.

The Grampians National Park is a major tourist destination in the Victoria region of Australia.

My suggestion:
When you get there, go straight to the Visitor Centre. You need to plan ahead to get the most out of your visit: waterfalls, panoramas, trails, camping areas, etc.
My review

The Grampians National Park with its green landscape and waterfalls attracts many nature-lovers. The number of trails make it a great destination for hiking enthusiasts.. For me, it is the last stop on my road trip before returning to Melbourne.

Don't miss the majestic Mackenzie Falls, but don't forget the more peaceful Golton Gorge - you will need to walk a bit to get there. The beautiful "Balconies" lookout is also worth a visit. From here you will have a spectacular view of the lush vegetation of the park!

Generally speaking, people go to the Grampians National Park for walking, camping and to see the animals, particularly the loveable wallabies.
