Also known as Gariwerd, the Grampians National Park made it on the Australian National Heritage List for its stunning indigenous rock art and majestic natural wonders. Apart from the rock art, the area is relatively untouched. Go to see the vast array of wildflowers. This is the home of the "Grampian Wave." This isn't a wave that needs water: It's a wind wave. This strange phenomenon happens when westerly winds hit the ridge at a right angle and push paragliders as high as 8,500 m (28,000 ft). In 2006, bushfires destroyed almost half the park, but only a few months after nature began to regenerate and visitors returned in full force.
