Grampians Olive Co. (Toscana)


Established in 1943 and 100 per cent family owned and operated, Toscana are one of Australia's oldest olive groves. Heritage trees, dryland organic farming, a Mediterranean growing climate and a passion for quality combine to create olive oils.

Grampians Olive Co is home to the historic Toscana Olives - the perfect stop on your Grampians day trip. Enjoy free tastings of the estate-produced premium organic olive oils in the farm shop, including the distinctive range of infusions, table olives and artisan vinegars. A selection of dukkahs, honey and farmgate exclusive seasonal preserves made on the grove are also available.

Espresso coffee and lunch platters can also be enjoyed while taking in the tranquil surrounds. Or take a tour and learn about the process from olive tree to bottle: from sustainable organic growing to harvesting, cold-pressing and hand-bottling.

During harvest season which is May to June , you can watch the team cold pressing fresh organic olives into oil. The press is the only one in the region and reduces the time between picking the olives and pressing them, maximising flavour and retaining antioxidants.

Gulgurn Manja Shelter - Laharum


Gulgurn Manja (pronounced Gulkurn Manya) meaning hands of young people, is a rock shelter at the northern tip of Gariwerd. From here the small groups of Jardwadjali would have been ideally positioned to see the fires of other groups on the plains to the north.

They also used the local finegrained sandstone to make stone tools. Marks where stone has been broken from the walls can still be seen in this shelter.

The paintings at Gulgurn Manja include bars, emu tracks and handprints. Handprints such as these are only found in northern Gariwerd, and many here were done by children, hence the Aboriginal name for the site. These paintings were part of a unique local art style which was used to tell stories and pass on the law of the people.
