EXPLORE ARARAT & BEYOND
Acacia Caravan Park is a perfect spot to base yourself as you explore the former gold-mining town of Ararat and the surrounding region.
The town’s most popular tourist destinations are without a doubt J Ward and its sister site, Aradale Asylum. Visit during the day to uncover these buildings’ dark past as a gaol and psychiatric hospital, or come back at night for a paranormal investigation and ghost tour.
Other local attractions include Gum San Chinese Heritage Centre, which tells the story of the local Chinese community and their major role in the town’s early history during the Victorian gold rush, and Alexandra Gardens, where you can enjoy a peaceful stroll by the ornamental lake.
Only 30 minutes from Acacia Caravan Park, you’ll find the spectacular Grampians National Park within easy reach. One of Victoria’s most popular holiday destinations, the Grampians are a series of rugged sandstone mountain ranges and lush forests where you can enjoy bushwalks, scenic drives, climbing and nature study.
As part of the Grampians Wine Region, Ararat is also central to many excellent wineries and cellar doors, including Montara Wines, Best’s, Seppelt, Grampians Estate, Mountainside Wines and Mount Langi Ghiran.
