A must do very diverse day walk! Dramatic scenery from the Pinnacle! Crossing Stony Creek, following the gorge and canyon upwards to exit via steel steps and ladders, then following arrows on rock through eucalypt forest and bare rock towards a narrow crevasse exiting via a ladder. Then on towards the cliffs and the Pinnacle.

Busier than expected. Nice views and interesting walk. Bring your own water

Amazing lookout at the top. Plenty to see on the way as well. This walk requires a bit of rock hopping towards the top (not steep enough to call it scrambling). The best view I've experienced in the Grampians so far. Highly recommend.

Ideal hike for the family. Fantastic location and plenty of places of interest and panoramic spots.

I have great memories of this walk. We started at Halls Gap and followed the track in a clockwise direction with took us past the Pinnacle, through the grand canyon, past Splinters Falls and Venus Baths before returning back to the start. It was a great full day walk.

One of mu favourite day walks in the area. Don't under estimate the fitness level. Kids loved it. Very diverse, stunning geological formations and a superb view at the end. Be prepared for windy and cold conditions at the Pinnacle.

This was the very first hike I did as a child of 7 years old.
The Grampians were the first mountain range I ever saw, due to living in country Victoria.
I fondly remember the rock formations.
I used to look at the Grampians from a distance with wonder in my eyes and adventure in my heart, that same feeling ignited inside of me when viewing the Himalayas and Andes for the first time!

A special place for me and one I hope to get back to one day.
