Mount Arapiles–Tooan State Park
The mecca of Australian rock climbing, this lump of sandstone that towers over the surrounding Wimmera Plain has more than 2500 recorded climbs, from beginner-level meanders to some of the hardest routes in the world. There is some bushwalking as well, including a track to the summit, and basic campsites (usually full of climbers), but the main way to come to grips with this park is attached to a rope a long way off the ground. Arapiles Climbing Guides and others listed on the Parks Victoria website will help you get started.
