4 hours drive from Melbourne’s CBD, In Victoria’s Wimmera region, is awe-inspiring Djurite, also known as Mount Arapiles.
The Djurid Balud Aboriginal clan inhabited the nearby area for thousands of years prior to the European colonisation of Australia. Today Djuirite is a site of cultural significance to Wotjobalak people. Djuirite is widely regarded as the top rock climbing area in Australia and is world renown.For non-serious climbers there is easy rock scrambling fun to be had to reach the summit from a nearby car park.And when you reach the summit you are sure to enjoy the views over the Wimmera plains.Or you might like to rest in a little cave.Look up for Peregrine Falcons then look down and watch your step as you descend!Campers can set up in serene Centenary Park camp ground on the east side of the mount. A scenic spot to sleep. There are no powered sites, but there is a toilet block with flush toilets, and campfires are permitted, but only between May and October. Book a camp site here.Access to the camp ground is from Centenary Park Road. For the summit scramble, take the other road.
