Not only is the Grampians a world class climbing area, it is also home to one of Australia’s most historical and acclaimed wine regions. Since when in Rome, one must do as the Romans do, we have organised this trip to bring you the best of both worlds – Climbing and Wine. Some experts even believe that the antioxidants in wine help you to live longer and climb harder! “Some climbers” believe that red wine is the best liquid for rehydration!

To enjoy the best of both the wine and the cheese, we will be staying at the Mt Zero Log Cabins on Friday and Saturday night. Leave some room after dinner, bring some cheese and wine and join us for a relaxed post-climbing chill out.

Accommodation: Mt Zero Lodge – approximately $22 per person per night for a 6 person share cabin (provided the cabin is full). Note: The cost will be shared amongst the trip participants.

The Trip Leaders for this climbing and social extravaganza are Paula and Steve Toal. Please contact Paula prior to the trip to secure your place. Full payment for the accommodation in advance will be required to secure your place on this trip.

Places on this trip are very limited. Beginner places and non-leader places may also be limited. Get in early as this trip was extremely popular the last two years!
