Gariwerd is the traditional name of the area known as the Grampians.
There are so many fantastic things to do in the Grampians and almost all of them involve enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings of this special part of Australia.
The team at Grampians Adventures have settled on our top 5 ways to explore and experience the best of Halls Gap and the Grampians from guided tours to more rigorous activities.
Our friends at Grampians Helicopters provide the best way to see the largest part of the area in the shortest time. Offering a variety of tours and trips, you'll see The Grampians and Wimmera region from above as Justin, your pilot shares his knowledge of the area during your flight.
Taking off from Stawell airport you'll go out over the mountains, or perhaps take in the Silo art trail, where you go is up to you but a flight with Grampians Helicopters is not to be missed. #helicoptertrip #grampiansfromtheair #joyflight #grampiansghelicopters #visitgrampians #visithallsgap #visitvictoria
