Easy track
Starting from Hollow Mountain Car Park, Laharum, this return walk takes you to Gulgurn Manja Shelter and back. The walk offers you both fantastic views from the surrounding mountains and insight into Aboriginal culture with paintings and motifs only found in the Grampians. The paintings tell stories of the Jarwadjali people and the landscape they call Gariwerd. Additionally, it is possible to observe the wildlife around the area while you are enjoying the magnificent view from the top. The walk is relatively short and suitable for most fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
