“Best Place in Halls Gap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We did the 9.6km Wonderland walk which takes you to the Pinnacle, however due to the 2011 floods part of the track is closed so we decided to do it anyway but we did it clock-wise (climbed up to the Pinnacle first) instead of anti-clockwise where its a slow incline to the Pinnacle...so it was actually more strenuous than I thought due to the climb of stairs & partner telling me Im too slow. But it was all worth it...I loved it. Great views, I love just lying down on a cliff edge & overlooking the valley. Best feeling.

“Worth the hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We took the long way around from the Wonderland carpark. Amazing wildlife and scenery. Watch out for the return track coming back though - you could be caught out and walk all the way down the mountain back to Halls Gap....which is what we did. Luckily the weather was awesome and got to see a rock wallaby on the path less travelled!

Amazing as always - all the improvements in the last few years have only made it better. Loved the loop from the Wonderland carpark.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Wonderful views throughout the whole walk, definitely worth it and would do it again!! I went with my family and they absolutely loved the walk, my kids (12 &16) loved climbing on some of the rocks!! They also had extra activities like rock climbing and abseiling... But these cost extra.
Overall it is a must do walk while you are staying at the grampians.

“Amazing views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We really enjoyed our hike up through the grand canyon route. The views were amazing! The pathway were rocky and it was quite steep. Loved the climb near the peak where the rocks on both sides of the narrow pathway became so narrow that some people had to squeeze through carefully! Once we reached the peak, we had a great time taking photos of the amazing views beyond! Must go!
