While on a weekend getaway in Ararat, we spent a day in The Grampians.
Originally called Gariwerd, it was renamed in 1836 after the Grampian Mountains in Scotland. It spans 1,672.19 km (645.6 sqm), making it the fourth largest National Park in Victoria. Known for rich Indigenous respects as well as the natural mountainous range itself.

The rural city of Ararat is known as the gateway of the Grampians. It’s also a town that people simply pass by without a second thought. It was founded by the Chinese during the GoldRush times (1851 – c. 1914.) and sits upon the land of the traditional owners, the Djab Wurrung (soft language) people.
Country Victoria has so many cities worth visiting, it just depends on what you’re after in a weekend away!
