Welcome to The Grampians
Rising up from the western Victorian plains, and acting as a haven for bushwalkers, rock climbers and nature lovers, the Grampians are one of the state’s most outstanding natural and cultural features. The rich diversity of wildlife and flora, unique rock formations, Aboriginal rock art, spectacular viewpoints and an extensive network of trails and bush camp sites offers something for everyone. The local Indigenous Jardwadjali people called the mountains Gariwerd – in the local language 'gari' means 'pointed mountain', while 'werd' means 'shoulder'. Explorer Major Thomas Mitchell named the ranges the Grampians after the mountains in Scotland.
