Grampians up top of visitor wish list for summer fun

Friday 11 January, 2013

Visitors have flocked to the Grampians National Park proving the park is popular with summer crowds eager to see the results of 18 months of flood recovery work.

Acting Ranger in Charge, Zoe Wilkinson said the best of the flood recovery work was now on display with visitors able to access more areas of the iconic park, including the recently reopened Venus Baths.

“The Grampians is a favourite for many visitors at this time of the year and it is wonderful to see so many people out and about enjoying nature,” Ms Wilkinson said. Ms Wilkson said the first of a four stage project to repair and restore access to the iconic Venus Baths provided improved access between the Halls Gap Botanical Gardens to Venus Baths.

“The restored Venus Baths Walking Track is a wonderful example of the great work being undertaken in this special park and a credit to our flood recovery team,” Ms Wilkinson said.

“As soon one project is complete the team is moving right on to the next. In addition to the recent reopening of Major Mitchell Plateau and Fortress overnight walks, the flood recovery program has provided opportunities for the more adventurous walker to visit the more remote parts of the park.”

Ms Wilkinson said the dramatic geology of the Grampians offered a huge variety of outdoor adventure experiences which put it at the top of the wish list for many park visitors.

“There so much to discover at the Grampians with the waterfalls, lakes, spectacular views, Aboriginal rock art sites, and a stunning array of habitats ranging from grasslands eucalypt forest, gullies with tree ferns to swamps and rivers.”
