What is the best time of year for a Grampian elopement?

In my opinion, the best time of year for a Grampians Elopement is Autumn.   The weather isn’t too hot nor too cold and there is an explosion of red, yellow and gold foliage.

Like many places, The Grampians can be busy in summer with tourists, but during the months of March, April and May, its a lot less busy.

An easy 3 hour drive from Melbourne, makes the Grampians the idea weekend getaway.  It is the perfect haven for food and wine lovers with plenty of great restaurants and boutique accomodation particularly around the Halls Gap area.  In addition, there is even an opportunity for helicopter rides winery tour.

Elopements in beautiful locations like the Grampians are the best way to get married.  You make special promises to each other in an intimate way, there are no expectations to be met and the day can look exactly as you want it.  Whether that’s climbing to the top of the mountain, or watching the sunset from the Pinnacle,  or sitting by the campfire underneath the stars.    The opportunities are endless.  The hardest decision to make is which wines to try.  In other words,   getting married, couldn’t be easier.
