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. Step off the beaten path and head to Montara Winery and Mount Abrupt. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ararat: Halls Gap (Venture, The Pinnacle, & more) and Dunkeld (Chimney Pots, Mt Sturgeon, & more). Spend the 4th (Fri) exploring nature at Grampians National Park. There's much more to do: stroll around Alexandra Gardens, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, don't miss a visit to Stawell Gift Hall of Fame, and examine the collection at J Ward Museum Complex.

Traveling by car from Horsham to Ararat takes 1.5 hours. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
