Quick look Itinerary

Day 1: GAR, PACIFIC OCEAN WALL, BRIGGS BLUFF
Hike 9.6km ⬆516m ⬇40m
Meet your guide and the expedition team in Halls Gap for a briefing and gear check before being transferred to Gar Trailhead in Roses Gap.

From Roses Gap the walk begins to ascend the lower slopes of Gar (Mount Difficult), find and begin to follow a small, unsuspecting watercourse. Witness this watercourse cascading over a series of drops each one more spectacular than the last – seasonal and rainfall dependent. We then walk towards the a cliff known as ‘Pacific Ocean Wall’. We ascend its flank via a superbly built stone stairway and continue climbing up to Briggs Bluff. With most of the ascent completed, from here we can traverse our way along the high ground before arriving at Gar Signature Hiker Camp and its breathtaking views.

It's time to kick back to relax, enjoy some refreshments and absorb the landscape. Later, your guides will whip up a fantastic, fresh, healthy trail meal and we’ll enjoy a matched glass of local Grampians wine.

Day 2: GAR SUMMIT, WERDUG BASIN
Distance walked: 13km ⬆422m ⬇710m

Up early this morning as we head up to the summit of Gar for a sunrise like no other. We’ll then return to camp for breakfast and then depart for day two's adventure.

Now we descend the eastern slopes of Gar, cross the northern end of the Werdug (Wartook) Basin and gain the ridge of the eastern flank of the Mount Difficult range. Continuing south along this high ground we will eventually reach Werdug Hiker Camp with stunning views overlooking Lake Wartook and a clear line of sight all the way back to the top of Gar where we stood that morning.

Day 3: EASTERN SLOPES OF GAR, CHAUTAUQUA PEAK
Distance walked: 10 km ⬆ 33m ⬇ 587m
Its your last day on the trail! We continue along the eastern flank of Mount Difficult and slowly tip over and descend towards the town of Halls Gap. For one last hoorah, we’ll head out to the end of Chautauqua Peak before finishing our descent all the way into Halls Gap. We’ll head back to the Hiker HUB where you can shower, collect our gear, and celebrate with lunch and a local craft beer at the conveniently adjoining brewery.
