Grampians National Park Small-Group Eco Tour from Melbourne

233 reviews
The jagged peaks and vast bushland of Grampians National Park lie just a few hours west of Melbourne. On this comprehensive full-day tour, take in all the natural highlights including Silverband Falls, MacKenzie Falls, stringybark forest, and Lake Bellfield; spot wild kangaroos and emus at Halls Gap; and hike to the Grand Canyon for a stunning view over Victoria Valley.

Great walk but zero effort from the council and/or society. Unkept signage that is damaged and uninteresting. In contrast we did the Pinnacle walk at the Grampians. That is the standard this walk should be at. Particularly for its historical significance. Need to lift your game Ballarat.

It could be an amazing walk IF the council spent some money on it. So much potential. Very interesting but not enough info as you go. The memorial at the end is lovely. Still worth doing, but it needs to be more interesting. Ballarat spend some money on it please...it’s history

Retraces as close as possible the march of the troopers and the police to the Eureka Stockade. To this day the police are not welcome in any of the commemorations of the actual event but there is a lot to work through. Recommended although it can be a bit of work

The trail starts in town on the corner of Lydiard and Sturt Streets Street next to the old Post office to the Eureka Stockade museum. Brush up on your history of an important historical event in Australia and enjoy the walk through Ballarat.

The Eureka Trail takes you from the Old Post Office, where the original police camp was located corner of Lydiard and Sturt Streets, to the MADE museum about 3.5kms away. The trail takes as best possible the route the troopers took to the Eureka Stockade manned by the gold miners. Walking alongside Yarowee Creek, an old mine at Black Hill and residential streets add variety to the trail. The trail has some sign postings but a few need to be replaced or repainted as do some of the historic boards that have information relevant to the trail and the troopers planning. It is a leisurely walk that will appeal to most, young and able. It ends at the MADE museum that also has a great liitle diner, the Saltbush Kitchen, where you can refuel before returning to Ballarat CBD.
