Itinerary

Day 1 | Adelaide to Grampians / Fish Falls and Mackenzie Falls Walk

Today we have an early departure (6.30am) from Adelaide CBD where we take the freeway out past Murray Bridge and Tailem Bend. We will have lunch enroute (included) with stops for coffee, and comfort along the way.

Excitement builds as we get closer to the Grampians and the horizon changes and the distant dots grow in size.

Without a doubt one of the most popular locations in the Grampians National Park, Mackenzie Falls is home to a stunning cascading waterfall with plenty of photo opportunities at the base. Be sure to bring your smartphone or DSLR for this!

Along our walking trail is also Fish Falls; a quiet, little spot perfect for relaxing on a rock while listening to the sounds of rushing water. It is approximately a 1.5 hour walk between both falls.

We will then check in to our accommodation and enjoy dinner together.

Meals Included: Lunch, Trail Snacks, 2 Course Dinner
Walking Distance: 4km

Day 2 | Mount Rosea

After a hearty breakfast, we will pack our lunch for a moderate hike up Mount Rosea.

This hike is rated moderate and is approx. 12km and should take 4 hours.

One of the more picturesque walks in the Grampians, this track is a perfect mixture of bushland trails, rocky paths and narrow corridors, and incredible views as we make our way to the summit.

Remember to take the time to turn around and look back at your surroundings – they are absolutely worth it!

We will enjoy a picnic lunch and take in the views of the summit. The afternoon is a restful one to relax, unwind and enjoy sundowners with us.

There is a chance to enjoy sunset at Boroka Lookout this evening before dinner.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Trail Snacks, 2 Course Dinner
Walking Distance: 13km

Day 3 | Pinnacle / Boronia Peak / Venus Baths

The Pinnacle Lookout is one of the many highlights of the Grampians. We venture on a 6km loop hike to this gorgeous place following our breakfast.

We then return to our accommodation for a well earned lunch.

After lunch and adjacent our accommodation, Boronia Peak trail is a good, old fashioned challenge winding its way up before a short rock scramble that will see us to the summit. You’ll experience 360 degree views of Halls Gap and the surrounding areas, on a trail that is without a doubt the most underrated hike in the area. This walk is approx. 10km and may take 3-4 hours.

An option for those low on energy after lunch is to join us on a relaxed walk to the picturesque Venus Baths instead.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Trail Snacks, 2 Course Dinner
Walking Distance: 16km

Day 4 | Chatauqua Peak / Drive to Adelaide

Sadly our time walking in the Grampians will end today but not before one last hike to Chatauqua Peak.

This has some steep sections and a rocky scramble to the top but again the views are sensational. This walk is approx. 6km return and will take around 2 hours.

We will head to back to Adelaide stopping for lunch and comfort along the way. We should arrive back to the CBD by 5pm. Please do not book flights for this evening.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Trail Snacks
Walking Distance: 6km
