The south-western branch of Grampians National Park is shaped around the curvaceous Victoria Range, and it’s at the foot of these mountains, on the site of an old timber mill, that you’ll find Strachans camping area. West of here are the Chimney Pots, an eye-catching rock tower that can be scaled via a steep track; the views from the summit are fantastic. Take Glenelg River Rd to get to Strachans. Note: there are bollards around the camping area.

This campsite is located in Grampians National Park

The sublime Grampians, also known as Gariwerd, are a series of steep, spectacular sandstone ridges adored by campers and bushwalkers. The region is home to over 800 species of plants – the wildflowers are a kaleidoscopic sight in spring. There are also numerous Aboriginal heritage sites, and stupendous views from places like The Pinnacle. The Henty Hwy and Grampians Rd off the Western Hwy are the main access roads.

The park was extensively damaged following a significant storm in January 2011, resulting in the closure of nany areas, so contact Parks Victoria before planning your trip.

Highlights of the large park include the unusual rock formations at The Balconies, Mackenzie Falls and the views to the east from the summit of Mt William. Sunrise here can be spectacular. There are also many worthwhile bushwalks ranging from easy short strolls to strenuous overnight hikes. Visit the Brambuk National Park and Cultural Centre, at the south end of Halls Gap, to get information about drives, walks and camping.
