The Grampians Welcomes Regional Travellers As Lockdown Restrictions Ease

September 16, 2020 Visit Oceania No Comments Email Email

As the Premier’s roadmap for recovery was announced earlier today, regional Victorians are celebrating COVID-19 restrictions beginning to ease and the options this brings for day trips, overnight stays and extended holidays within the state.

Grampians Tourism is encouraging Regional Victorians to get out and explore the destination to experience the abundance on offer. After weeks of staying home now is the time to get out in the great outdoors, take in the stunning scenery and enjoy some locally produced food and wine. The Grampians offers something for all tastes and budgets and now is the perfect time to explore post lockdown.

Marc Sleeman, CEO, Grampians Tourism said: ‘With Metropolitan Melbourne still unable to travel outside of their immediate area, there is no better time for our regional neighbours to enjoy the Grampians. Embrace the beauty of the area and support the local tourism industry and jobs. Our region is beautiful at this time of year, the food and drink venues are ready for visitors and our tourist attractions cannot wait to have you back’.


Get outside and breathe in the fresh air – Once described as ‘The Garden of Victoria” the Grampians is home to a third of Victoria’s flora. See flowering shrubs and orchids in the Northern Grampians around Mount Zero and Mount Stapleton. During Spring, the Wartook Valley offers a huge display of Grampians thryptomene a tiny white blossom which turns from pink to light brown. Further south visitors can find native grass species, bluebells, pincushions and red and green correas. These natives are in abundance at the summit of Mount William.

Swap Netflix for a hike– After months of being on the couch it’s time to get outside in the fresh air and walk the iconic Pinnacle walk. As the One of the highlights of the region, the Pinnacle rewards walkers with views of Halls Gap and many of the Grampians peaks. Alternatively, for those looking for a challenge Mount Abrupt offers a more intense walking circuit that winds through bushland to the summit. Once at the top hikers can enjoy the views of the Serra Range and Dunkeld.

Enjoy wine with a backdrop – Many of the Grampians wineries will be opening for business and encouraging visitors to come sip on a Shiraz or relax with a Riesling. Most wineries offer views across the Grampians which can be enjoyed with a cheeseboard showcasing locally produced cheese and small goods.
