The bridge at the back SE corner of the Grampians National Park gives easy access to a number of small cliffs of mostly good clean rock low on the hillside. The cliffs are all clearly visible from in front of the Visitors Centre.
Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area
A low profile always helps to avoid too much attention from tourists and park rangers
Cross the bridge and in front of you there is a long broken cliff line across the spur between 2 major gullies. The LH end of the cliff line at the LH gully is the Gully Cliff. R of this about 150m is a wall with two lines up its front. This is Tombstone Rock. 150m R again of this is a clean grey block dead ahead. This is the Peanut Gallery. The blocks just before the RH gully are Pinnacle Rocks. Follow the walking track across the cleared area to the trees. 50m into the trees leave the track and head R then veer L to follow the L side of a gully up hill to the 4wd track. Walk L on this and at the high point head up and L for Tombstone Rock and the Gully Cliffs. Head up and slightly R for the Peanut Gallery.
For Pinnacle Rocks walk R on the 4wd track to the first high point then head straight up hill. About 15 minutes to each cliff.
