Perhaps one of the most iconic views in the Grampians, The Balconies is a spectacular lookout accessed by a short, scenic walk. 

From the parking area, an easy stroll takes you along a well formed gravel track to the lookout as you pass gorgeous scenery, fascinating rock formations, and sweeping views along the way. 

To the left of the walking track you will come across a series of gorgeous stone platforms. These are popular for photos, as people standing on the rocks have amazing views stretching out behind them.

As you near the lookout, lush greenery closes in around the track and you pass a couple of beautiful wooden seats. From here it is not far to the fenced lookout platforms and incredible views over Victoria Valley.
