Brilliant Base Camp #1: Grampians (Gariwerd) NP

We’re happy to share the first in our Brilliant Base Camps series. The Grampians is one of Victoria’s favourite national parks, famous for wonderful walks, amazing views, Aboriginal cultural heritage and stunning wildflowers. The region offers a wide range of accommodation and other recreational activities such as photography, canoeing and kayaking. Given its popularity, you’re more likely to have the tracks to yourself if you choose to walk mid-week. Here are our notes and suggestions for planning Grampians base camps.

Now…over to you!
