Looking for places to stay in the Grampians, Victoria, Australia?
We invite you to be our guests and to enjoy a relaxing holiday at Grampians Paradise Camping and Caravan Parkland, a beautiful caravan park with large grassed spacious sites with shady trees, nestled under the highest peaks of the Grampians, 750 metres from the National Park, within a beautiful rural country setting.
We are outside the crowded tourist area, with beautiful views of the mountains and surrounding countryside, but within easy reach of the popular Grampians attractions and Halls Gap (15 minute drive to the Gap).
With the spacious powered sites and unpowered sites taking some of the best locations within our parkland, we differ from most other tourist parks in that there are no rows of cabins interrupting the views of the grounds and surrounds. The small number of period style (vintage and retro) onsite caravans are scattered about the camping ground and within easy reach of the amenities and other facilities.
We trust you will enjoy the peace and tranquility of camping in our beautiful garden parkland overlooking our small lake. The camping ground is also surrounded by wetlands that are the home of many native Australian animals and birds. Birds and native animals including kangaroos and kookaburras can be seen from time to time in the camping ground.
Many of the spacious grassed camping areas are shaded by tall trees and surrounded by gardens with beautiful Australian native flowers, which attract a myriad of native birds and animals. The Parkland sites have great views of the Grampians Mountains.

Grampians Paradise Site Map (this map is accurate to scale).
All of our sites have something special about them. It might be they are shady, or are big, by our lake, have a fire place (available for use in late autumn, winter and spring) or have great views of the mountains.
This map is to scale, and some of the sites are huge. South 7 (S7) for example is 18 by 10 metres in size (180 square metres). Even North 3 (N3) is 8 by 9 metres in size.
To help you select your site we have two list with photos. For these lists go to Sites by Location or Area or Sites by Classification or Type (each type of site has a different price to other types - see the tariff page).
