Information

The Mount Arapiles-Tooan State Park is located within the Wimmera Plains in Central Victoria with Mount Arapiles being the most spectacular feature of the park. For more information about Mount Arapiles, please see separate Place Listing in the Nearby Places list.

Mt Arapiles-Tooan State Park is a 334km drive from Melbourne, with access via the Wimmera Highway and Centenary Park Road. The nearest town supplies are Natimuk and nearest major town is Horsham.
Visitors should bring their own drinking water. The Bluff and Summit picnic areas do not have toilets. Collection of firewood is prohibited in the park but you may bring your own wood, or preferably a gas or fuel stove.

THINGS TO DO
The gravel vehicle track circling Mt Arapiles is suitable for driving and cycling. It is a good way to take in the spring wildflowers. In winter only the eastern end of the track is opened to vehicles.
Centenary Park Campground is the only place to camp in the park. There are three camping areas there with toilets and picnic tables. See separate Place Listing for Centenary Park Campground for more information.

Whilst the area is a world-renowned rock climbing area, there are also a number of walking trails for non-climbers to enjoy. The Circuit Walk starting and ending at Centenary Park Campground is mostly flat but has access to the Mt Arapiles Summit via short but steep paths at the end of the circuit (15km, 3 hours).

Climbing should only be undertaken by climbers with experience and training, or under the guidance of skilled and qualified instructors.
