Mildura Weekly : Friday July 29 Vol 10 No 38
FEATURE 25 FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2016 MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU THE Grampians is one of Victoria’s must-see regions boasting everything from the majestic Grampians mountain range and ancient volcanic cones, vital river systems, streams and lakes right through to a wealth of history dating back to the 19th century. Taking in Ararat, Avoca, Beaufort, Dunkeld, Halls Gap, Hamilton, Horsham, St Arnaud and Stawell, the Grampians offer a veritable feast of attractions for visitors. Halls Gap, in the central Grampians, features the famous Mackenzie Falls, Victoria’s largest and most majestic waterfall, which is accessible via an easy walk. Visitors can also take on the Pinnacle Walk, a steady climb past rock formations that takes you to Pin- nacle Lookout and its awe-inspiring views. And while we’re on the topic of awe-inspiring views, Baroka Lookout is another location that should be included in any visit to the region, offering a great view of the Halls Gap Valley and eastern plains. While Halls Gap has a plethora of natural attrac- tions to take in, there are plenty of other interest- ing stops, including the Brambuk Aboriginal Cul- tural Centre, which is open daily from 9am to 5pm offering not only information on the area’s natural environment, but its rich Aboriginal heritage. The Halls Gap Zoo meanwhile is Victoria’s largest regional zoo, boasting 160 species of native and exotic animals. In between taking in the natural beauty and other attractions the area has to offer, why not stop at Livefast Café, which has made its name as the best coffee spot in Halls Gap, open seven days a week.
