Ararat ©
Ararat is a city in south-west Victoria, Australia, about 198km west of Melbourne, on the Western Highway on the eastern slopes of the Ararat Hills and Cemetery Creek valley between Victoria's Western District and the Wimmera. Take a break from the city and head to Grampians Adventure Golf and Halls Gap Zoo. Get some cultural insight at J Ward Museum Complex and Steve Morvell Wildlife Art. Venture out of the city with trips to Ngamadjidj Shelter (in Laharum), Halls Gap (Venus Baths Loop, Chatauqua Peak, & more) and Heatherlie Quarry (in Ledcourt). Spend the 19th (Fri) exploring nature at Grampians National Park. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Bunjil's Shelter, do a tasting at Blue Pyrenees Estate, browse the exhibits of Ararat Gallery TAMA, and go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
