Moderate track
Starting from Halls Gap Caravan Park, Halls Gap, this return walk takes you to Splitters Falls and back, visiting Venus Baths and Grampians Botanic Garden along the track. Splitters Falls is a seasonal waterfall whose flow intensifies during Autumn, a suitable time to enjoy the sound of the flow and water falling onto the rock below the Splitter Falls. On the way, you can also visit Venus Baths, which are small water bodies scattered around rock formations, and they are suitable for children and adults to have some fun. The walk can be demanding towards the middle as it becomes steeper, but a moderate fitness level is enough to complete it. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
