Welcome to The
GRAMPIANS PEAKS WALKING COMPANY

We’re here to inspire, support, and enable you to discover and fall in love with the Grampians Peaks Trail.

Our award-winning, world class local guides operate multi-day guided walking and camping experiences along various stages of the GPT. For those after a little more comfort, our ‘Luxe’ walks perfectly balance wilderness with uncomplicated luxury.

For independent hikers, we offer equipment hire, shuttle transport services, and water/gear drops, to help take the hassle out of hiking and give you peace of mind on your journey.

IMMERSE YOURSELF in the
heart of THE GARIWERD

Our walking & hiking vacations bring you directly into the natural beauty and rich culture of the Gariwerd landscape. Explore rugged sandstone peaks, sheer cliffs, dramatic waterfalls, and breathtaking views alongside passionate storytellers.

The Grampians: geologically, a uniquely formed mountain range. Ecologically, one of the most diverse National Parks in Australia. Culturally, home to tens of thousands of years of human history. Spanning 160km, the Grampians Peaks Trail revolutionises the opportunities for hiking and adventure in the Grampians. Curated sections of the trail tell their own stories. How will you experience the GPT?

SCHEDULED TRANSPORT

The Grampians Peaks Trail isn’t a loop walk, meaning that you won’t finish up where you start. Don’t get stuck in the bush without a lift.

Whether you want your car waiting for you at the end, or to leave it safely in Halls Gap or Dunkeld, our scheduled bus service can provide the solution. Simple pricing, guaranteed departures. Problem solved.

Schedule gear, water and food drop-offs along the trail for your hiking convenience.
FOOD DROPS

The Grampians Peaks Trail is a long walk, and food weight can add up quickly. Carry a lighter load and let us do the running around! We provide sturdy, weatherproof containers for you to pack your food into, and will deliver them to your selected locations along the trail.

Choose the number of containers you need and then the locations you need them dropped. Add transport to the same booking and get 40% off your food drops.

Our guides are passionate storytellers and caretakers.
GEAR RENTAL

“This is the way to ‘do’ the Grampians! The trip struck the ideal balance between nature, physical exertion and luxury. Not only did we enjoy the highlights of the Grampians National Park, we experienced and tasted the highlights of the region’s makers, growers and creators. Everything was taken care of, and not making ANY decisions was my highlight!”

“The route chosen for our Northern Luxe trip was absolutely outstanding! The scenery was consistently spectacular, with exciting terrain and just the right level of difficultly and elevation to get the heart pumping without being too exhausted to take it all in! We had an outstanding guide, proving delicious meals and paying attention to the needs of the group. I loved it… thankyou for the work you are doing in this space. it is a very exciting time for the Grampians!”

“Just got back from the Northern Luxe walk with the Grampian Peaks Walking Company and it was sensational. Our guide was excellent. His passion for the local area was genuine and well deserved – it really is an incredible landscape. I would recommend this walk for anyone who is keen to stretch more than their legs and enjoy a break away from their 9 to 5 routine. I have never slept (or ate!) so well!!”
