Overview

Just imagine sitting at your camp, miles from civilisation, in an ancient landscape watching the milky way explode to life above you and not having a care in the world. Your tents are set up, your dinner is made for you and even a bottle of local wine has just been opened. Your friends are laughing and reminiscing about the day's trek and the wonderful landscapes you have just experienced. Could life be any better?

Rising out of the flat landscape of Western Victoria, the ancient Grampians mountain range extends for 160 km north to south, creating a series of dramatic escarpments that reach heights of over 1100 meters. This is your home for 3 days and 2 nights.

Parks Victoria has developed a 13-day hike through this incredible country which will be rolled out of the coming years. The first section of the Grampians Peaks Trail has already opened and you can be one of the first to experience it on our fully guided and fully escorted trek.

All you need to do is get yourself to the Grampians and we will take care of all the rest!

Routes

Day 1: Halls Gap to Bugiga Hiker Camp

Day 1 we will all meet at the Halls Gap Post Office by 9am before heading deep into the Grampians escarpment along one of the most popular day trails and beyond. The trail winds its way from Halls Gap via Splitters Falls and then through the famed Grand Canyon. After a few ladder climbs we will continue on through narrow rocky trails to the wonderful Pinnacle before heading south to Lakeside Lookout and ultimately our Bugiga Hiker Camp. This trail offers incredible views for most of the day. The actual walk is 8.6km and should take us 5 hours. (L, D)

Day 2: Bugiga Hiker Camp to Borough Huts Campground

This is a wonderful days trekking as we will summit Mt Rosea (1009 meters). To reach Mt Rosea along the Grampians Peak Trail, we must first negotiate our way through a maze of sandstone outcrops before reaching her summit. The views from the top are incredible with panoramas of the Serra and Mt William Ranges. Our long descent is through a sheltered forest to the Borough Huts Campground. The trek is 13.8km and should take us 5-6 hours. (B, L, D)

Day 3: Borough Huts to Halls Gap

After a delicious breakfast, we will walk along Bellfield Lake via the Bellfield Track and the Terraces Fireline all the way into Halls Gap for lunch at the Brewery. While this part of the trail is not part of the main Grampians Peak Trail, it is the only way at present to loop back to Halls Gap. We will cover approximately 14km which should take us about 5 hours. (B)
