Picnic at Mount Zero Picnic Area before tackling the gentle ascent to Flat Rock. The more adventurous can continue on to Mt Stapylton. Flat Rock offers views of a natural amphitheatre featuring the stunning yellow and red streaked rock faces of Taipan Wall.
If you love waterfalls, then head to Roses Gap, where Beehive Falls is a fairly gentle walk ending at the beautiful cascade and quiet setting of pretty rock pools and lush ferns. As with most waterfalls in the Grampians, its better after rainfall. Go in spring and you'll see some amazing wildflowers too.
Hollow Mountain carpark is the start of another easy walk which takes you to the Aboriginal rock art shelter of Gulgurn Manja. Ponder the small hand prints on this rock art shelter wall while looking out over the surrounding Wimmera Plains.
The northern Grampians is also home to some harder walks where you will need to scramble and rock hop with steely nerves. The climb to the top of Hollow Mountain is an adventure. Once upon the mountain, you enter an eerie landscape of weird and wonderful wind-carved rock formations. The ascent to the summit of Mt Stapylton is also a memorable walk that will take your breath away.
With so much to do, it’s definitely worth staying the night, so bring your tent and camp at Stapylton Campground.
