Awe-inspiring!

It was an awe-inspiring as well as educational. The fact this place is part of Australia's Aboriginal myths, and standing right into it is simply an amazing experience.

We thouroughly enjoyed walking to this viewpoint with our family. Even the pushchair with a 10 month old child made it along with 2 grannies, a grandad and his parents. Unfortunately the view was spoiled by an idiot girl sitting on a rocky outcrop despite the extensive warings at the site. Not amuswed!!! Beatiful views all round.

It is a flat walk to the balconies from the car park. But longer than you realise. At the end the scenery is worth every bit. Come at sunset especially in the summer and it is stunning.

A pretty little 1km walk from the Reed Lookout carpark will lead you to The Balconies. Make sure you check it out because the views from here are absolutely stunning! There are two lookout points here and the view is worth every step you take to get there! A must visit if you're in the Grampians!

An easy 2 km round walk along a well defined path to a spectacular view. (If it wasn't for the 30 degree heat and the flies, I would have enjoyed every step of the way.) The Balconies is an unusual rock formation next to a fantastic lookout spot. You aren't supposed to go onto the Balconies itself anymore - plenty... More

Having been to the Boroka Lookout this is very similar but looking the other way. There is a boardwalk and path out to The Balconies viewpoint. It's supposed to be wheelchair friendly: well I wouldn't want to push one all that way.

Nice and easy return walk and very rewarding! Make sure you go at sunset! absolutely gorgeous view and worth the walk! Shame other tourists can't seem to read the sign and decided to sit on the rocks themselves when it clearly says no access. Lots of litter on the track because people seem to find it difficult to read the... More

A bit of a trek from the car park but path clearly marked and quite level, well worth the effort of the drive up the hill and the walk, enjoyed the fresh air and the peace and quiet of the location as for the views from the lookout they will stay with me for a long time to come, just... More

After taking in the views from Reeds Lookout, take the 2km return walk to the Balconies, which is suitable for strollers and wheelchairs. The walk climbs gently through a stringy-bark forest and when you reach the viewing area you will be rewarded with view of the Victorian Valley below. The famous rock formation you see from the viewing platform was... More

Easy return walk with kids, we covered this spot before it get hot. We are with kids so covered this before mid-day. It is worth spending time to enjoy the view, so reach there before it gets too hot. Easy 2km return. Carry water, no toilets in carpark. Cannot carry Params or stroller
