The Grampians Peaks Trail is Victoria’s newest multi-day hiking trail that officially opened on the 13th November 2021. The trail is Victoria’s longest new hiking trail (160km) since the construction of the Great Ocean Walk (100km) was opened in January 2006. The Grampians Peaks Trail is designed as a 13 day / 12 night end to end trail experience that spans the entire length of the National Park.

Note there is a shorter (36km) loop trail of the same name (which overlaps this route as well):  https://fastestknowntime.com/route/grampians-peaks-trail-vic-australia
