Bookings are now open for the Grampians Peaks Trail up until 31 August 2023.
A spectacular natural and cultural experience on the lands of the Jadawadjali and Djab Wurrung peoples, the challenging hike runs 160 kilometres from Mt Zero in the north to Dunkeld in the south.
Hikers have booked almost 13,000 nights of camping along the trail since it opened in November 2021.
Bookings are now open for the winter season and hikers are encouraged to check the Parks Victoria website and make their bookings. There are a range of itineraries to choose from. Hikes can be as short as a single overnight hike or up to the full thirteen days.
Crisp winter days are beautiful for hiking, however weather conditions can change quickly along exposed sections of the trail and only experienced hikers should undertake the trail at this time. It is a challenging hike – Grade 4 and 5 – so hikers should have a good level of fitness and be prepared for hiking in steep terrain with a full pack.
Stay at unique hike-in campgrounds along the trail, climb dramatic mountain peaks with panoramic views and hike along rugged rocky ridgelines. Experience a rich diversity of flora and fauna and the ancient Aboriginal culture of Gariwerd. The trail caters for a variety of hiking styles, from self-guided walkers and groups, to school groups and fully-facilitated hikes with a Licensed Tour Operator.
Additional improvements to the booking system and flexibility in how you choose to hike the Grampians Peaks Trail is coming. With the benefit of over 12 months of bookings data and following feedback from hikers, we are increasing the options available to give people more choices to create their own itinerary and book their hike more easily.
Hikers will also be able to change their booking dates online (Terms and Conditions apply) and for hikers booking the full 13-day hike, add an extra rest day in Halls Gap if preferred.
