TRAVELLING ON

     
Grampians Wineries

The Grampians region has a long history of winemaking and is the perfect place to travel after you have visited the Great Ocean Road. As you travel northward from the coast, across the farmland of the western districts you will be amazed by the rugged, rocky peaks of the Grampians form the dramatic backdrop to a region known as the birthplace of Australia's sparkling wine industry. Founded in the 1860s, the district of Great Western lends its name to the best known sparkling wine in Australia. Take a tour of Seppelt’s National Trust-classified underground tunnels or visit the rustic cellar door of Best's Great Western. Today the Grampians wine region includes vineyards and wineries around the city of Ararat and the townships of Buangor, Great Western and Halls Gap.
