The Grampians region includes the Grampians National Park, a serious of stunning sandstone mountain ranges approximately 240 kilometres west of Melbourne.

The Grampians are the southern end of the Great Dividing Range, the 4th longest mountain range in the world,  separating the eastern and southeastern coastal areas from the drier and warmer interior.

The area was named in 1836 by Sir Thomas Mitchell after the Grampian Mountains in Scotland. Before European settlement the area had cultural significance to Aborigines living in the area.
