Grampians National Park

Add to Wishlist

Mountain Time

You'll find some of Australia's most astonishing mountainscapes in Grampians National Park, where tilted sandstone layers form wave-like scarps and craggy fins. The Grampians rise nearly to 4,000 feet on Mount William, the summit panorama of which is well worth the trek up. Besides hiking and camping, the park makes one big rocky playground for climbers. Ecosystems range from open heathlands--host to awesome bloom bonanzas in spring--to red gum and stringybark forests; native critters include wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas, koalas, and emus. As arresting as the scenery and ecology are, Grampians National Park is also a precious repository of Aboriginal culture, which has been part of the landscape for better than 20,000 years. Southeastern Australia's greatest collection of rock art lies in these rough and rugged highlands.
