Facilities: Grampians National Park 167,100 ha, is the third largest in Victoria.
Its spectacular scenery, colourful displays of wildflowers and wide range of opportunities for outdoor recreation have also made it one of the State's most popular holiday destinations.

This park is home to almost a third of Victoria's plant species, and a large percentage of its animals.

Over two-thirds of Aboriginal art sites in Victoria are here, and Aboriginal people continue their strong association with the area (see Brambuk Living Cultural Centre notes) Historial sites include Heatherlie Quarry on the Mt Zero Road, the source of sanstone for Government House in Melbourne, and the Mafeking goldfield.

National parks allow camping in designated areas;with fees varying from park to park. In any national park or reserve special environmental and safety considerations apply. Many parks do not allow open fires, so campers will need to carry fuel stoves. Bushfires are a serious menace particularly during the summer months and fire ban warnings must be heeded.
Each state has its own independent national parks authority and several of these have produced guides which detail the facilities available in each park.
