A joint initiative of Friends of Arapiles, the Victorian Climbing Club/CliffCare and Parks Victoria. Central Gully is a popular walking track at Mount Arapiles-Tooan State Park. This much loved park is renowned as one of Australia’s best rock climbing areas with over 80,000 visitor days a year. Building on the success of an earlier project – Pharos Gully walking track – this project aims to repair Upper Central Gully Walking Track. We are seeking funding to pay for a skilled stonemason to craft hundreds of stone pitched steps to create a lasting beautiful walking path for everyone.

Central Gully together with Pharos Gully make a 1hr loop walk taking in the highest point in the Wimmera, the summit of Mount Arapiles. Final stop on Australia’s longest mountain range - the Great Dividing Range. This walk with its stoneworked steps will allow the community to engage with these spectacular views. From across the Wimmera plains to the Grampians and the Little Desert National Parks beyond. The only place in the Wimmera to see these views. A sustainable track for a community of generations to come, a place of peace and quiet enjoyment, for wellbeing and pride of community.
