The third largest National Park in Victoria, with its jagged slopes, cascading waterfalls, and sandstone mountain tops, was formed 400 million years ago by an upthrust of the earth's crust and is known as "Geriwerd" among local Aboriginal tribes. The Koories who roamed the Geriwerd recorded dreamtime legends and ceremonies on the walls of caves. As the mountains provided a rich source of food and water, thus making hunting easier, the Koories had more time to spend on cultural activities. The evidence can still be seen today by the over 100 caves found where the rock faces are decorated with fine examples of Koories art. The Brambuk Living Culture Centre near Halls Gap brings to life the rich culture and history times of the Koories communities.
Main attractions include the Brambuk Living Culture Centre, Boroka Lookout, The Pinnacle, Zumstein, the spectacular MacKenzie Falls, and the Balconies rock formation. Activities include bush camping and walking, wild flower studies, hiking trips, and rock climbing.
