Mount Arapiles - Tooan State Park




Mount Arapiles is a spectacular feature, rising sharply from the Wimmera plains to form part of the Mount Arapiles-Tooan State Park.

Things To Do
Rock climbing - Mt Arapiles is widely regarded as the top rock climbing area in Australia and is world renowned. More than 2000 routes have been developed on the many cliffs, crags and pinnacles, presenting variety and challenge to climbers of all levels of experience. The climbs are featured in a variety of commercially available climbing guides.

Note: Rock climbing can be a hazardous sport and should only be undertaken by climbers with experience and training, or under the guidance of skilled and qualified instructors.

Camping - Centenary Park is a great spot to enjoy a picnic. Centenary campground is the only place to camp in the park. There are three camping areas withing the campground.

Bluff Picnic Area - Enjoy the spectacular views from this picnic area. Basic facilities are provided - fireplaces and picnic tables. There are no toilets

Walking - Walking is a great way to discover the park. Marked walking tracks feature some spectacular views, catering for a range of fitness levels and time constraints.

Cycling and driving - The vehicle track circling the Mount is suitable for cycling and driving, and is a good spring wildflower walk. In winter only the eastern end of the track is opened to vehicles.

Review:


Take the turnoff to Centenary Park to get to an area where there is parking and camping facilities. It could be a long walk on stony paths to see climbers. The area known as "The Pines" is the traditional camping area which has wood fires, toilets and camping fees.
