Harlan will be taking you on a weekend away to the Grampians, which you’ll never forget. This tour is best suited for whom love walking and exploring nature.
The Grampians are a series of five spectacular sandstone ridges running north to south with steep and craggy slopes on the eastern side and gentler slopes to the west. They are the result of earth movements lifting and tilting the hard sandstones to create an impressive landscape of peaks and valleys. There are lookouts with stunning panoramic views as well as a number of impressive waterfalls.
Brambuk is a special place. Situated in Halls Gap within the natural oasis that is Grampians/Gariwerd National Park, it is the perfect place to experience Australia’s native flora and fauna and Aboriginal culture.
The site incorporates the National Park information and Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre.
Brambuk is 100% owned and operated by Aboriginal people and is the longest-running Aboriginal Cultural Centre in Australia.
Its multi-award-winning architecture interprets the traditional stories of the local Aboriginal people. Discover the culture of the Aboriginal communities of Western Victoria through multimedia shows, art exhibitions, artefact displays, cultural talks and lots of great activities such as didgeridoo music, traditional dance, basket weaving, boomerang throwing and painting.
Discover the unique Six Seasons of Gariwerd through the displays or join the Aboriginal guides on tours to ancient rock art sites and experience the secrets of the natural world. Brambuk Gift Shop offers art and crafts, ceramics, paintings, boomerangs and music. The Bush Tucker Café is licensed and serves delicious bush tucker and contemporary food.
