Summits, Peaks and Flows

Join us on a Grampians women’s walking weekender in gorgeous Gariwerd Country.

Walking pack-free (day pack only) on moderate trails each day with incredible views, waterfalls and rocky escarpments. Return to comfortable accommodation each night with relaxation and freshly cooked meals.

Professionally led by our qualified and experienced female bushwalking leaders – ladies, it’s time to walk with us!

This tour starts and finishes in Adelaide. If travelling from Melbourne, join us in Halls Gap on Day 1 (via public train/bus) then travel with us to Adelaide and extent your trip. Alternatively self-drive. Discounts applied.


Day 1 | Travel / Mackenzie Falls / Brambuk

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, with stops for coffee and comfort along the way. Alternatively, you can choose to make your own way to Halls Gap and we will meet you there.

Upon arriving we journey up to Mackenzie Falls. 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. Be sure to bring your smartphone or DSLR for this!

Along our walking trail today is also Fish Falls. A quiet little spot which is perfect for relaxing on a rock while listening to the sounds of rushing water. It is just over an hours walk between both falls.

Next we visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about this land, named Gariwerd by the First Nations People. We will then check in to our accommodation and enjoy a nibbles platter together, followed by dinner.

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 will take us around 4 hours to complete. A very picturesque trail, it has a perfect mix of bushland, rocky climbs, narrow corridors, and incredible views as we make our way to the summit. Remember to turn around and look back at your surroundings along the way – it is absolutely worth it! We will enjoy a picnic lunch along the way.

The afternoon is a restful one to relax, unwind and enjoy sundowners. We also journey to Boroka Lookout to enjoy sunset over Halls Gap.

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 will take 3 to 4 hours to complete.

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 / Travel

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 will take around 2 hours to complete.

After checkout we depart for Adelaide, stopping for lunch and comfort along the way. We will arrive back to the CBD by around 5pm. Please do not book flights for this evening. Alternatively, you can choose to stay longer or travel separately to an onward destination today.

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