The remote and rugged northern Grampians is a quiet alternative to popular Halls Gap. The wide, open spaces of Stapylton Campground offer everything you need for a comfortable stay, and is a favourite grazing spot of the local mob of kangaroos.

The campground features shared fireplaces and picnic tables. There are pit toilets and untreated tank-water is available, however you should bring drinking water with you.

Individual campgrounds need to be booked online in advance and you need to bring your own firewood.

Leading off from the campground, the Mount Stapylton Loop Walk is a great introduction to the iconic landscapes of the Grampians. Meander through dense scrub, dip into forested gullies and scramble over sandstone steps to reach the unforgettable vistas to be had.

A shorter stroll out to the Ngamadjidj Shelter provides a unique insight into the rich Aboriginal history of the region. Tee up your walk with a visit to Brambuk – The National Park and Cultural Centre in Halls Gap to learn about the six seasons of Gariwerd, try your hand at traditional painting methods or treat your taste buds to some bush tucker in the cafe.
