Chatauqua Peak reviews
This is a good walk for the moderately fit. The view is good, as are many around Halls Gap. Take water. more »
Start of climb is close to town. Moderate climb. Few areas where you need to climb over rocks. Dont be surprised if few kangaroos meet you on the way up. Great views from the top! Must do. more »
Amazing views of Halls Gap and surrounding areas, stunning on a warm winters day. Hike from main camping ground is well worth the effort. The first half of the track runs through quintessential Grampians landscape, the rest opening up to a more rocky and challenging track. Sturdy feet are needed when walking along the summit, as well as for the rest of the track. Some “rock-scrambling” is needed to pass some points on the top, but a good view is also achieved by not completing the most difficult part of the hike. A huge amount of care needs to be taken on the top as on both sides there is quite a fall, well worth the effort though!
The magnificent and unobstructed view is perhaps the best reason to climb the Chatauqua Peak. Or it should be all the wonderful hike there, a hike that is not too heavy and can be combined well with a visit to the Clematis Falls and / or the Bullaces Glen. Make sure that you are a bit sturdy in the walking shoes, because the paths are narrow. Nevertheless, definitely recommended!
