Summary

This Langi Ghiran and Mt Gorrin hike commences at the visitors area. Walk via the reservoir where you will join the Easter Creek Track. Follow this track until the trail ends. From here you will commence hiking off-trail in order to gain the summit of Langi Ghiran. The next section of the hike is completely off-trail. You will need to pick the best path through the valley in order to gain the summit of Mt Gorrin. From Mt Gorrin then continue off-trail back to the start point at the visitors area.

Langi Ghiran is a mountain 14 kilometres east of Ararat in Victoria, Australia, and is home to the Djab Wurrung people who have lived on this land for tens of thousands of years. Rugged granite peaks and gentle sloping woodlands are the dominant features of this local landmark. A pleasant walk to the mountain summit presents a view of ancient Red Gums on the surrounding plains skirted by Mount Buangor in the east and the Grampians in the distant west. Lar-ne-jeering (Langi Ghiran) is Djab Wurrung language for ‘home of the black cockatoo’.

Notes

The section between Langi Ghiran and Mt Gorrin is mostly off trail. Off track walking is permitted in the park. Bring a GPS, but also a map and compass (never rely completely on a GPS).

Langi Ghiran is a beautiful state park that not many people know about. It is a ‘hidden gem’ that provides many beautiful and wild walks for those who are lucky enough to visit this amazing area.
