  • It is a good point to see in panoramic the Grampians, but an increasingly strong rain was falling and arriving we have a fog that allowed you just sense the view. I still recommend it, the walk from the parking area to the end is soft and pleasant

  • If you only have the time or energy to walk to one lookout, then make it this one. The view is really spectacular.  more »
  • Grampians National Park, in the Japanese quite a popular tourist attractions. Second visit, so much was not impressed by the classic, so I went. Have views of the Lake from the road with rocks, became an original scene of Princess Mononoke monsters that open mouth rocks in the"end point of views. From there pretty amazing wide view! Distance change through superior is not spread out of the Bowl-shaped land, so try several times and little less joy. It is still amazing views! Access trails are well marked and a good easy and effortless. Come at night because it is open 24 hours, it's also a good dark, couldn't see only sky.

  • The lookouts and the rocks are impressive. The park is pretty nice too. The walk is extremely easy, even wheelchair accessible. So, if you are looking for some hike, this is probably not the perfect place ;)
  • View from the Balconies is less impressive than Reed lookout at car park - good photo opportunity if you want to climb out onto rock ledge. 1km walk to get here from Car park is flat and level - through dense bush though so not much to see on the way.
  • This has to be the best view of the grampians. You can't get out into the "Jaws of Death" any more, but if you turn up here in the evening on a sunny or partly cloudy day, you can watch the sun setting and casting shadows over hills as far as the eye can see. It's well worth the 15 minute walk from Reed lookout to get here.
  • This is a great place for sunset. Unfortunately there isn't too much to do other than pull up in a car and get a photo
  • One of the most amazing view I've ever seen, from the lookout you can see the whole thing. I won't tell you about the sunset..
