Northern Grampians Deluxe Walk Trip highlights

  • Enjoy day walks in the Northern Grampians – by far, the most dramatic part of the Gariwerd Landscape
  • Witness some of the best panoramic views in the country
  • Stay in our private, off-grid eco-lodge (twin share)
  • Experience the ancient Aboriginal culture of Gariwerd
  • Discover the unique animals and plants that call this remote wilderness home
  • Enjoy local wine and produce before dining on a banquet-style home-cooked feasts

Our Northern Grampians Deluxe Walk begins at Mount Zero and explores Mount Stapylton, continuing on to the Waterfalls for Gar, Briggs Bluff and Beehive Falls, to name just a few iconic landmarks. On the way, we’ll experience ancient indigenous rock art, scramble to incredible 360-degree views, and feel dwarfed by the scale of the landscape.

Each day, transfer back to your private, off-grid eco-lodge and, after a hot shower, enjoy a glass of local wine and sample some local Grampians produce before dining on a banquet-style home-cooked feast.



Arrive at our eco-lodge anytime after 5pm. Once the whole team has arrived we will enjoy a welcome drink over a briefing that covers the plan for the next few days and updates on the weather. Afterwards, we will enjoy our first dinner as a group and the rest of the evening is yours to relax and get to know your new friends.

A short transfer will take us to the very northern end of the Grampians Peaks Trail where we’ll begin our walk. From the Mount Zero picnic area we will pass through the Stapylton Amphitheatre and be dwarfed by one of Victoria’s tallest and steepest rock climbing walls. We’ll exit the amphitheatre and have the option for a very scrambly ascent to the summit of Mount Stapylton. It’s quite a scramble with some exposure to heights, so this side trip may not be for everyone. On return, we’ll continue southward on the GPT until we turn off to Staypleton campground where we will be met by our bus for a late lunch at Grampians Olive Co. We will then visit Ngamadjidj rock art shelter, enjoy a tasting at Staypleton Wines and then head back to the eco-lodge to relax before dinner. Walking Distance 12.5km | Ascent 450m | Descent 490m

Meals:  B,L,D

A 5-minute shuttle brings us back onto the GPT to start our day’s walk. The dramatic scenery continues as we’re dwarfed again by giant sheer cliffs and explore newly rediscovered seasonal waterfalls. The high point of today’s walk is an optional side trip up to Briggs Bluff – offering an epic 360-degree view of the Northern Grampians and the Wimmera Plains. We’ll then backtrack slightly before turning off to Beehive Falls and then walk back into the front of the eco-lodge. Walking Distance 16km | Ascent 600m | Descent 600m

Meals:  B,L,D

Our last day is a good time to reflect. We’ll take a short drive to visit an indigenous art site and continue our discussions on the cultural landscape we have been walking through, then take one last hike up Hollow Mountain for a view back over our first day’s walk. We will then transfer back to our eco-lodge for a final debrief over lunch and departure around 1 pm.

Trail Surface




Our Grampians Deluxe is graded introductory and is designed for those who love to hike and explore and don’t mind putting the miles in during the day and then prefer the comforts of returning to boutique accommodation for the evening. Hot showers, crisp linen, outstanding catering – all the adventure with a little more “comfort”. Each day, you’ll only need to carry a few small items for the day such as water, a snack, and a rain jacket. This trek involves walking 5-8 hours each day over rugged terrain with some steep ascents and descents. Overall, the trail is characterised by rocky, stony and mountainous terrain. Each day's walk could range from 8-15kms over a range of elevation with the odd section that may require a short scramble (using both hands and feet for balance). Suggested preparation: We recommend regular exercise 3 or 4 times per week (this can be cycling, jogging or walking) in the months leading up to your trip. At least once a week, you should walk with a weighted day pack (4–6kg) for several hours for leg strengthening and aerobic fitness. The best way to train for an active holiday is to simulate the activity you will be undertaking on the trip. Train for uneven terrain by finding a hilly, rough narrow bush track, and go for a lovely long walk in your trekking boots.

Victoria enjoys a temperate climate and reliable rainfall with four distinct seasons. Here is a guide to the weather conditions.

Summer: the average maximum temperature in south-west Victoria across January and February is 25 degrees Celsius. Sunscreen is required at all times, even on glary days, the UV factor can be deceptive. Wind can also burn, even when the temperature appears mild. Overnight temperatures vary from 8 to 15 degrees Celsius.

Winter: June to August is the coldest time in Victoria, with average maximum temperatures of between 8 and 13 degrees Celsius.

Spring and Autumn can be anywhere in between! Expect mild days, with ocean breezes and winds. Late afternoons cool down, and evenings will require a fleece or long sleeves.

As with all mountainous walking, the weather can be unpredictable at all times of the year and the area can experience heavy rain and temperatures below zero degrees even in summer. For group safety and comfort having adequate gear and equipment for the local conditions ensures your wilderness experience is enjoyable. Upon booking you will be provided with a specialist gear list available that details what is required for the Grampians Peaks End to End Trek.
