To say the travel industry is booming today would be an understatement. Travel—especially travel Down Under—has never been hotter, with new and wonderful places making their presence known among the old favourites in the travel industry. Australia’s natural wilderness is something of a happy combination of the two and has continued to be the source of intrigue for tourists the world over.
Nowhere is this more true than amidst some of Australia’s most beautiful rainforests and natural parks. These are the areas which are truly one of a kind, helping set Oz apart on the world stage. Each year, tours of Australia’s most lush, beautiful natural wonders make untold millions. A picture is worth a thousand words, and a picture as beautiful as those you’ll be able to take in such places are likely worth a lot more than that—but the glory of places such as Grampians National Park is simply priceless.
Here are just a few things to expect on those oh-so-wonderful Grampians National Park tours.
One of the best things about Australia is, by far, its natural beauty and wondrous animals. The two are happily combined on tours of Grampians National Park, which features an incredible array of animal life. If you have ever wanted to visit exotic places, you can do no better than the exotic flora and fauna on display here. A hike through nature here means running across some of the most amazing animals on the planet. Kangaroos, cockatoos, wallabies—you name it, and chances are good you’ll be able to find it in the Grampians National Park. One of the best features of such a tour is being able to get up close and personal with some of Australia’s most wonderful animals. This also means getting to experience some of the most varied weather and climates in Australia and, indeed, perhaps the whole planet. Add to that the fun of taking a hike through some of the most lush and densely filled terrain around, and the allure of Australia as a vacation destination becomes clear.
Of course, there is much to see and do besides simply animal spotting. There are many different cultural sites to check out in the area as well, including the Brambuk Cultural Center, Tower Hill Reserve, and the famous Great Ocean Road. Made by soldiers during World War I, the road is a monument to those who served and stands as one of Australia’s most thoughtful and resonant landmarks.
A Few Things to Remember
There are, of course, a few things to remember before starting out on your trip. First, you want to keep your schedule flexible to accommodate road conditions and, of course, your potential urge to stay in certain places longer than others. In addition, some areas, such as the Pinnacle, make for a fun but challenging hike which may require some physical strength and endurance.
Whichever path you choose, you can bet that a hiking tour of the Grampians National Park is a truly fantastic way to see some of the best natural beauty Australia has to offer.
