‘Friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide. The tour ensures sufficient time at the highlights around the Grampians. The group was not too big. There were 21 people from across various age groups and countries. The bus was comfortable and very clean. I would recommend this tour for a solo female traveller!’

    I booked a 1 day Grampians Tour as I had previously done a Great Ocean Road tour and loved it and the Grampians has always been a place that I have wanted to visit whenever I have visited Melbourne in the past but never had the time until now. The tour guide Dave who picked me up and dropped me off back at the hotel, was one of the best tour guides I have come across. He was a friendly guy with a great sense of humour who knew everything about the Grampians and made the effort to get to know everyone on the bus and where they came from which was a nice touch. Got to see great views of the Grampians and had a great day out.

    We drove to several lookouts with amazing views. We also did a little bit of walking, but not more than 3-4 km. We went to Mackenzie waterfalls. It was very beautiful! This is a very good tour when you love nature. Although it takes 4 hours to drive from Melbourne to the Grampians, it’s worth it!

    I had a great time on this trip. Carla was an amazing guide who was clearly passionate about her job and happy to answer any questions. She made an effort to speak to everyone and was energetic throughout the whole day. We were taken to multiple lookout points where we got great views of the surrounding scenery. We also did a few walks including a hike to the Mackenzie waterfalls, which was absolutely beautiful. A highlight of the trip was seeing the kangaroo joeys resting in their mums pouches. Can’t get more Australian than that. Although there was a lot of driving involved, the day went really fast and I never found myself getting restless. Definitely a really fun day out. Highly recommended.

  • What You Can Expect

    Experience the natural beauty and Indigenous significance of Victoria’s famous Grampians National Park (known by the First People as Gariwerd) on this small group Grampians Tour from Melbourne. The tour operates at a relaxed pace and includes all the must-see sights.

    Following hotel pick-ups, you’ll journey west towards the Grampians range. The drive takes around three hours and comfort stops are provided as needed.

    On arrival at the foot of the Grampians, the tour heads to the famous Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Here you’ll learn more about the culture and heritage of the region’s First People. It’s a fascinating experience.

    Departing Brambuk, you’ll ascend into the majestic peaks of the range, stopping at various lookouts and points of interest along the way. Make sure your camera is fully charged!

    Some of the scenic highlights of this Grampians Tour from Melbourne include the magnificent views from The Balconies and a walk to beautiful McKenzie Falls (steps are involved and the walk is optional). You’ll also visit the scenic Boroka Lookout and some of the water reservoirs dotted throughout the range — where you’re quite likely to encounter Aussie wildlife, including some of our most beautiful bird species. As you travel through the Grampians you’re almost guaranteed of seeing kangaroos and wallabies. Stunning wildflowers bloom for much of the year.

    You’ll also enjoy ample free time to explore the township of Halls Gap and purchase lunch (own expense).

    The tour arrives back in Melbourne late evening, and a dinner stop will be made en route (own expense).

    This Grampians Tour from Melbourne provides a friendly way to experience a truly magnificent part of Australia.
