Full description

Depart Melbourne Central Business District and pass over the mighty Westgate Bridge as you make your way through the western suburbs of the city towards western Victoria. Journey through the Victorian goldfields of the 1850s and take a short break in the quaint country town of Beaufort for morning tea.  Approach Grampians National Park and get an appreciation of what makes the giant mountain range so spectacular as it appears from the surrounding flat plains. Marvel at Mt. William as you get your first glimpse of the park, and then go to the Brambuk Aboriginal Culture Center to learn about the art, heritage and 6 seasons of the Grampians as described by the indigenous people. Discover an abundance of kangaroos resting in the areas around the center. Next, make your way into the heart of the park, and enter the small township of Halls Gap. Enjoy the drive into the Mt. Difficult range. Take in the breathtaking views of the plains of western Victoria from Boroka Lookout, before walking to the geological icon of the Balconies, featured in the Japanese animation "Princess Mononoke." Continue to the base of the majestic Mackenzie Falls or Silverband Falls, and follow a series of more than 250 stairs to the bottom of the cascades to cool off and relax. As the sun begins to set, keep an eye out for large mobs of kangaroos that call the area home before your return journey to Melbourne.

Excellent tour with a wonderful guide. We got to see Kangaroos and Emu in a stunning backdrop. Visited some of the local towns while passing through and got some lovely mementoes. We were brought to a selection of beautiful look out points and then ended the tour with Mackenzie falls. Would 100% recommend, fantastic day out in beautiful surroundings with a lovely friendly knowledgeable guide! Also the bus was new and spacious with good air con which I really appreciated.

Organization fine. Personally I didn't think the mountains, waterfall and viewpoints were really spectacular but it was nice to see now that I'm in Melbourne for a few months but if you are here for a short period I wouldn't immediately put this tour high on my priority list (for example in contrast to the blue mountains near Sydney, I thought that was really cool!). The evening stop on the way back for a quick bite was at a gas station (with KFC) but if you're not into the fried food there were options for sandwiches, mine may have been a poor choice as this was really really poor quality. It would have been better if I had bought something for dinner at a supermarket earlier in the day.

Lizy was a great guide. She told us interesting information and history about the place, aboriginal people. She has bright, happy energy and made my day great even though people was bit shy and calm. Pianacle track wasn’t tough so It’s good to go with kids. There are more than 250 stairs on the way to Mckenzie falls, it was quite hard when we came back from there. Recommend you to wear a sneakers. And we saw a few wild animals, wallaby and kangaroos! Definitely worth to go.
