Our GPT E2E Expedition is for keen hikers that are looking to complete the entire Grampians Peaks Trail in a single continuous journey – multiple days, start to finish without leaving the trail – while enjoying the benefits of walking with and learning from an experienced local guide and with a lighter load on their back. While we take care of all the group equipment (cooking equipment, food etc) you will need to be capable of carrying your personal clothing and sleeping bag, approximately 10-12 kgs. Over the course of the Grampians Victoria expedition, there will be 2 opportunities to have a bag of fresh clothing swapped in/out to reduce the load you need to carry.
If you are looking for a slightly shorter trip or are keen to complete the entire GPT over a number of visits, check out our shorter Expedition programs.
If you like the idea of a shorter multi-day expedition but prefer the idea of a real bed over a tent, check out our Huts Walks.
If you like creature comforts like a hot shower at the end of each day and walking pack free – check out our Grampians Luxe programs, Northern Huts Glamping, Luxury Walk & Accommodation, and Luxury Walking Tours Australia.
