=== Safety - important for The Grampians ===
An important part of our Grampians trip is the safety education our guides provide to people while visiting. Unlike other destinations, the Grampians has specific safety issues that a few unlucky visitors have underestimated in the past and paid dearly. People that have had incidents in the Grampians have almost always visited by themselves (not with a tour company like New To Melbourne). Our tour guides are trained in safety and safety education specifically for this trip. Please remember to stay safe friends.
