10 things to do for couples in the Grampians
Planning a getaway in the Grampians? These are some of the best things to do.
Want to get away with your special someone? For those looking for a romantic holiday with a difference, the Grampians region is blessed with more than just incredible lookouts from high sandstone peaks. While it’s easy to suspect the area was tailor-made for sunrises and sunsets, the craggy 160,000-hectare national park, three hours’ drive north-west of Melbourne is also a natural playground where waterfalls cascade down sheer rock faces and you can enjoy incredible hikes (or gentle walks) on paths fringed by wildflowers and ferns. Add to that the myriad restaurants, cellar doors and galleries just waiting to be explored and you've got yourself the ideal weekend destination.
