Grampians Tourism encourages local tourism following ease of lockdown restrictions
Grampians Tourism is encouraging Regional Victorians to experience and explore the Grampians with the destination offering something for all tastes and budgets.
Grampians Tourism Chief Executive, Marc Sleeman advised “with Metropolitan Melbourne still unable to travel outside of their immediate area, there is no better time for our regional neighbours to enjoy the Grampians. Embrace the beauty of the area and support the local tourism industry and jobs. Our region is beautiful at this time of year, the food and drink venues are ready for visitors and our tourist attractions cannot wait to have you back.”
The remarkable Aboriginal cultural landscape of the Grampians continues to be revealed, with recent rediscoveries in the national park being added to the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Register.
Known as ‘Gariwerd’ to Traditional Owners, the Grampians is home to precious native plants, animals and ancient cultural heritage, including the richest concentration of rock art in Victoria. Archaeological excavations of Aboriginal sites in the park indicate occupation sites that are around 22,000 years old.
The park’s values are protected by legislation, including the Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 under which significant financial penalties apply for harm caused to Aboriginal cultural heritage.
The recent rediscoveries were made during park assessments with Traditional Owners, as part of the process to develop a new management plan for the Grampians landscape.
