Grampians

Inject your next event with a sense of adventure in the Grampians region.

Generations of Victorians have thronged to the Grampians for good reason. This timeless landscape, formed millions of years ago, is a sacred place for Aboriginal people and a go-to event location for your modern-day corporate kin.

From the soaring rocky escarpment that dominates the skyline to the rich rural hinterland dotted with delightful villages, it’s a far cry from the hurly-burly of city life.

Your team will fi nd all the creature comforts they need in up-to-the-minute venues ranging from luxurious resort-style stays and well-appointed community centres to convention centres, upmarket hotels and even a “hatted” restaurant.

Post-meeting, head to the Grampians National Park for group challenges or personal solitude time. Rock climbing, abseiling, cycling, canoeing, quad biking and bushwalking are all on the team-building agenda. There are 160km of sign-posted walking tracks with high-reward scenic panoramas and other-worldy rock formations.

Take a guided tour of ancient Aboriginal rock sites or give your team time to commune with nature – waterfalls, wildfl owers and wildlife abound in the park. Hotfoot it to the Halls Gap Zoo for hedge-your-bet sightings of more than 160 native and exotic mammals, reptiles and birds.

The regional centres of Hamilton and Horsham offer galleries, shopping plazas and fascinating heritage trails alive with country-wide streetscapes.

Chill out in a boutique winery, relish the fresh local produce at signature eateries or re-group for a day’s end debrief in an old-fashioned rural pub.

Choose your own Grampians adventure and create an outstanding conference experience.
