Pomonal

Pretty Pomonal lies just outside the eastern border of the Grampians National Park. Famous for its native flowers and orchids, the area's rolling green hills make a gorgeous backdrop to nature walks, vineyards visits and farm gate expeditions.

Dazzle the senses with Pomonal's floral beauty on a visit in spring for the annual Pomonal Native Flower Show. While you're there, be sure to see the stunning wildflower nurseries on Wildflower Drive in full bloom.

See the flowers along the Pomonal Tunnel Walking Track, which leads over the top of the Mount William Range and provides sweeping views of the Serra Range. Stop on the way down at the historic water tunnel, constructed in the 1870s to supply water to the mining town of Stawell.

Stock up for the journey home at farm gates, local wineries and regional producers. Nearby Gap Winery offers a range of wines to suit all palates while Red Rock Olives is the place for cold-pressed olive oil and gourmet table olives. Pick up fresh fruit from the orchard on Lake Fyans Tourist Road and sample local lavender products, olives, and herbs as you make your way around the town.

Pomonal is around 240 kilometres from Melbourne, or around two hours and 40 minutes by car along the Western Highway.
