The Brambuk Cultural Centre is conveniently located beside Halls Gap. Home to a stunning range of flora and fauna, as well as Aboriginal rock sites adorned with ancient art, this destination is highly recommended for learning about the local culture and nature. It also happens to be the oldest running cultural centre in Australia that is operated by the Aboriginal people, so be sure to stop by for its cultural programs, didgeridoo performances, or a traditional dance show.

The Horsham Town Hall is the number 1 entertainment venue in the Grampians. It’s best known for showcasing top-rated Australian and international performances. Aside from being one of the best Grampians venues for entertainment, the Horsham Town Hall has a rich history that dates back to 1938 when it once served as a humble municipal complex. Today, the elegant town hall can accommodate up to 500 patrons for shows as well as conferences or functions.

Another popular destination among the Grampians area is the Ararat Town Hall, which hosts many arts and cultural performances and concerts throughout the year. These include musicals, comedies, educational shows, morning melodies, instrumental shows, and many more.

If you’re craving some action, there are many Grampians venues that specialise in these too. The Blue Ribbon Raceway in Horsham is an excellent destination for all kinds of motorsport events, with racing seasons starting in October of each year. There are different racing classes that participate at the Blue Ribbon Raceway; including Formula 500s, 1200cc Juniors, Heavy Hot Rods, Super Modifieds, and much more.

The Astor Cinema Ararat is a heritage-listed building and a top cultural venue. The building was established in the 1930s and today is a popular cinema in town. Just behind the building is an excellent collection of memorabilia that tells the story of the structure’s past.

Culture, art, entertainment, and action can all be found at the many Grampians venues. Be sure to check out their schedule during your visit.
