These sandstone cliffs and mountains were named after the Grampians in Scotland, by the early 19th century, Scottish born, Surveyor General of New South Wales. The range looks something like a choppy ocean – covered in trees, its green ridges cut away to exposed east facing cliffs on a north/ south line like a roll of white capped waves coming in.

One of the real attractions of the park are the many excellent rock art sites found in overhangs and caves though out the park where indigenous Australians once sheltered. This is one of the best known sites to see the famous human hand prints and animal track art.

The most popular area for day walkers is Halls Gap, where there are lots of nice looking waterfalls and interesting rock formations. The highest point in the park is Mount William which is relatively easy to scale.

Summer in the Grampians can get very unpleasant, it's much more comfortable to walk in spring or winter. Roads within the park mean it's easy to drive in and camp, but there is also a tourist centre in Halls Gap with hotels and other accommodation.
