Safety - important for The Grampians:
An important part of our Grampians trip is the safety component and education our guides provide to people while visiting with New To Melbourne! Unlike other destinations, the Grampians has specific safety issues that need to be respected. Sadly, a few unlucky visitors (from the public, but not on our tours) have underestimated in the past and paid dearly.
Our tour guides are trained in safety and safety education specifically for this trip. If you follow these simple safety instructions (e.g. do not jump the fences or step onto dangerous rock ledges), you will have a great experience.
If you intend on going to dangerous ledges (for photos or any other reason), do not attend our tour.
