Covering more than 1600kmĀ², the Grampians National Park boasts some of Australia's finest hiking and camping. For many, Halls Gap is where their Grampians experience will start.

A small town located in the heart of the Grampians, it is the launch point for numerous short and medium-distance hikes. From Halls Gap, hikers can easily access the likes of the Boroka Lookout and MacKenzie Falls, as well as take on more challenging overnight hikes in the park.

Despite the trails being popular with visitors, there is still plenty of scope to find quiet places and take in the best of the views and wildlife in the Grampians.
