When it is finished in 2020, the Grampians Peaks Trail will be a once-in-a-lifetime 13-day hike through the backbone of a mountain range famed for its dramatic scenery and Aboriginal heritage.

Even in its current format as a three-day, two-night circuit hike from Halls Gap, the Grampians Peaks Trail is still unforgettable. The trail takes in popular highlights such as the Grand Canyon and the Pinnacle lookout as well as quieter spectacles such as the route to the summit of Mount Rosea.

Your first night's camping is on specially raised tent pads at Bugiga Hiker Camp. Enjoy awesome views from this campground built exclusively for the use of Grampians Peaks Trail hikers.  

Your second night's camp is at Borough Huts Campground, a popular spot close to Fyans Creek and Lake Bellfield. If you would prefer to do a two day, one night hike, you can arrange for a pick up from Borough Huts.

The Grampians Peaks Trail is well signposted, but includes very steep sections and many obstacles. Only experienced and well-prepared walkers should attempt it.

Please register your hike at Brambuk National Park and Cultural Centre and pick up an up to date map.
