DAY 1 – Zumsteins and Mackenzie River walk

Distance: 7kms
Grade: 2 – 3, easy to moderate

Setting off early from the National Gallery of Victoria, our journey takes us west towards the Central Highlands and Wimmera Southern Mallee regions of Victoria. We begin our journey in the National Park’s northern end to explore the Mackenzie River which flows through the park. Here you will enjoy stunning views of the surrounding sandstone mountains as we make our way from Zumsteins to Mackenzie Falls. Along the way, enjoy views of the cascading Fish Falls, before entering into a deep gorge before the final approach to Mackenzie Falls. At the end of the trail, we pass by the Zumsteins Historical Area, where we can learn about the area’s rich Aboriginal and European history.

This walk is a beautiful and diverse hiking trail that showcases the natural beauty and cultural significance of the Gariwerd – Grampians National Park.

After our days walking, we check into our lovely accommodation, have time to settle in and enjoy the surrounding bush and wildlife with a beautifully prepared nibbles platter before a two-course meal.

DAY 2 – Stony Creek to the Pinacle, Sundial Peak to Rosea Campground

Distance: 11kms
Grade: 3, moderate

After a hearty, continental breakfast and with our day’s lunch packed away in our day pack we begin our walk from the heart of Halls Gap. The trail begins alongside Stony Creek and rises towards Wonderland.

The imagery and the unique shaping of the rocks gives rise to features like the Elephant Hide and the Grand Canyon. We emerge out onto the rocky spine of the Pinnacle, one of today’s visual spectacles. After lunch our days’ walk continues on a more even footing out to Sundial Peak where you can rest and soak up another stunning view.

From here the days’ walking winds up at the Rosea Campground. A short drive later and we have you back in our accommodation where you can freshen yourself up and then join us for pre-dinner nibbles followed by a two-course dinner prepared by your guides.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

DAY 3 – Mount Rosea to Borough Heights

Distance: 13kms
Grade: 3 – 4, moderate to difficult

After breakfast and lunch making, we return to where we finished up yesterday. This time we start a moderately challenging ascent to the peak of Mount Rosea. While the climb is challenging the path is so well formed and shaded you will enjoy the rhythm of the walk before topping out at the summit of Mount Rosea.

It makes a superb spot for lunch and time to enjoy your reward for your morning’s efforts. The trail from here winds down to where it finishes at the Borough Huts Campground, nestled amongst the trees offering a peaceful secluded area to finish our day’s journey and enjoy a refreshing cold drink at the van.

Back to our place of stay for some well-earned respite, this evening you will enjoy a two-course dinner prepared by your guides.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

DAY 4 – Boronia Peak

Distance: 7.6kms
Grade: 3, moderate

Strap on the boots for our final walk together.
After breakfast, we pack-up the trailer and depart for the trailhead.

Beginning our walk at the Brambuk Visitor Centre we head for Boronia Peak. The summit of Boronia Peak sits at an elevation of 985 meters and offers unobstructed views of the Grampians range and the surrounding countryside. The hike to the summit is relatively challenging, with steep sections and rocky terrain, but the views from the top make it well worth the effort.

Crossing Fyan’s Creek and an easy walk takes us to the base of the Mt William Range, where it begins a steady climb. Finally we top out at Boronia Peak with panoramic views over the Wonderland Range and surrounding peaks. Retracing our footsteps we will return to the van.

A short drive later we are back in Halls Gap where we enjoy lunch from a local cafe before we begin our journey back to Melbourne.
