The Grampians is a popular long weekend or week long destination from Melbourne
and travellers in general. The park offers some fantastic scenery, wildflowers, walking and climbing opportunities and has a number of bush camp
sites and plenty of room. For the 4WDer, there are a myriad of 4WD tracks to travel.
In January 2006 a large bushfire swept through the central part of the Grampians National Park. Environmental regeneration and the recovery of park facilities are well underway. Most roads and walking tracks are open, however those that do remain closed need further safety and recovery works undertaken.

Camp Sites & Accommodation
The history of the Grampians dates back some 5,000 years ago when it was home to the Aboriginals. The Grampians were named in 1836 by NSW Surveyor-General Sir Thomas Mitchell who thought the ranges reminded him of his home in Scotland. As European settlement
grew, the Grampians became an excellent source of water for farming and domestic purposes. In the early days, they were also an excellent source of timber, gold and quarrying. Declared in 1984, the Grampians National Park is a 167,000 hectare park and is home for almost a third of Victoria
's plant species.
