Starting at the Wonderland Carpark on Wonderland Road, Halls Gap, this circuit walk takes you first to Turret Falls, and then up to The Pinnacle. This scenic walk takes you across rugged sandstone slopes to the beautiful and unique Turret Falls. Keep an eye out for native wildlife along the way, including koalas, kangaroos and echidnas. There are plenty of rocky ledges to sit on and take in the views of the falls, and with a bit of careful scrambling, you can make your way right to the base. The iconic Pinnacle lookout is one of the highlights of the entire Grampians region. Hikers are rewarded with breathtaking views of Halls Gap and the many surrounding mountain peaks. Past the lookout, make your way through a tall, narrow gorge on the awe-inspiring Silent Street, past the beautiful seasonal Bridal Veil Falls. This walk ends returning through the imposing rock formations of the Grand Canyon. Toilet facilities and picnic tables are available at the Wonderland Carpark, where the walk begins. Keep in mind that the rocky surfaces of this walk can get very slippery after rain. 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.
