Delve into the Origins of the Grampians

Learn the local Dreamtime creation story of the Grampians — known as Gariwerd to Aboriginal people — on this 3-hour walking tour in western Victoria. Revel in the natural beauty of the region while you learn of its remarkable ancient history.

Gariwerd is a spiritual place rich in dreaming stories, sacred sites, bush tucker, water, and shelter. It is central to the dreaming of the Djab Wurrung and the Jardwadjali peoples, whose descendants remain involved in Gariwerd by maintaining the culture and stories of the land.

This unique spot also hosts 90% of the rock art sites in Victoria, some dating back 22,000 years. Gariwerd is the resting place of the creator spirit Bunjil and his two helpers, the Bram-Bram-Bult brothers, so they are featured in many rock art pieces in an act of reverence.

The Grampians National Park is internationally renowned for its abundant wildlife, waterfalls, rugged rock formations, spectacular views, and stunning spring wildflower displays.

After a full morning of absorbing the cultural, historical, and spiritual significance of the area and admiring the landscape, we invite you to join us for a delicious wattleseed damper and a cup of lemon myrtle tea at our cosy cafe.
