Meringa Springs, Grampians National Park

From sophisticated wineries and vineyards to the wild beauty and indigenous creatures of the Grampians National Park – with an exclusive, refined hotel thrown in for good measure.

You stand shoulder deep in the infinity edge swimming pool drinking in a view stretching far over the Wartook Valley towards the Grampians National Park, with its soaring mountains, vast sweeps of rolling bush and dramatic valleys. In the foreground a grazing kangaroo – one of a sizeable mob – pauses, stands upright, scans the surrounding countryside with one revolving ear and calmly returns your stare.

Visit the Meringa Springs Hotel during your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Australia and you’re likely to see more kangaroos, wallabies, possums and interesting birds than people. This unpretentious gem of a hotel only welcomes 10 guests at any one time. Giving you virtually uninterrupted access to the glorious swimming pool, the cosy lounge and, of course, the wildlife of the Grampians National Park

Other itineraries in Australia

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
