Grampians Northern Huts Walk Trip highlights


  • Enjoy the Northern Grampians – by far, the most dramatic part of the Gariwerd Landscape
  • Witness some of the best panoramic views in the country
  • Experience the ancient Aboriginal culture of Gariwerd
  • Discover the unique animals and plants that call this remote wilderness home
  • Uninterrupted journey while staying in on-trail 4-berth hiker huts with comfortable mattresses
  • Experience unique rock formations, cascading waterfalls and stunning panoramic views

We’ll begin our journey at the Gar Trailhead in Roses Gap, pass some of the most spectacular seasonal waterfalls in the Grampians, reach incredible high points that offer 360-degree views and over 3 days make our way back to Halls Gap. Each night we’ll stay at a Signature Hiker Camp, rest, enjoy a freshly cooked trail meal and sleep under a blanket of stars on a comfortable bed. No matter your level of hiking experience, our passionate local team will guide and support you through this journey to explore their backyard.

Trip Code: GNH

Meet your guide and the expedition team at the Grampians Peaks Walking Co Hiker Hub in Halls Gap for a briefing and gear check before a transfer to Gar Trailhead in Roses Gap – approximately 30 minutes drive. Immediately, we begin to ascend the lower slopes of Gar (Mount Difficult), find and begin to follow a small, unsuspecting watercourse – seasonal and rainfall dependent. Over the next few km, we will witness this watercourse cascading over a series of drops each one more spectacular than the last. After we gain the top of the last waterfall, we’ll head towards the ‘Pacific Ocean Wall’, a cliff ‘as big as the pacific ocean’, ascend its flank via a superbly built stone stairway and continue climbing up to Briggs Bluff. With most of the ascent completed, from here we can traverse our way along the high ground before arriving at Gar Signature Hiker Camp and its breathtaking views. We will tour the campsite and check into our huts before kicking back to relax, enjoy some refreshments and absorb the landscape. Later, our guides will whip up a fantastic, fresh, healthy trail meal and we’ll enjoy a matched glass of local Grampians wine. Walking Distance 9.6km | Ascent 516m | Descent 40m

Meals:  L,D

An early start this morning as we head up to the summit of Gar for a sunrise like no other. We’ll then return to camp for breakfast and then depart on the day’s journey. We will sharply descend the eastern slopes of Gar, cross the northern end of the Werdug (Wartook) Basin and gain the ridge of the eastern flank of the Mount Difficult range. Continuing south along this high ground we will eventually reach Werdug Hiker Camp with stunning views overlooking Lake Wartook and a clear line of sight all the way back to the top of Gar where we stood that morning. Walking Distance 15km | Ascent 521m | Descent 462m

Meals:  B,L,D

Our last day on the trail (for this expedition!) will continue along the eastern flank of Mount Difficult and slowly tip over and descend towards the town of Halls Gap. For one last hoorah, we’ll head out to the end of Chautauqua Peak before finishing our descent all the way into Halls Gap. We’ll head back to the Grampians Peaks Walking Co Hiker HUB where we can shower, collect our gear, and celebrate with lunch and a local craft beer at the conveniently adjoining brewery. Walking Distance 10km | Ascent 33m | Descent 587m

Meals:  B
