Grampians Region Climate Adaptation Strategy

The 2050 Vision of the Grampians Region Climate Adaptation Strategy is that Grampians Region communities, organisations and natural systems are thriving in a changing climate because we are adapting well together.

Adapt Grampians is a regional hub for information sharing, learning and inspiration to ensure we adjust and thrive in our changing climate

Grampians Region

The Grampians Region stretches from the South Australian border to Bacchus Marsh in the east. It covers 4,861,944 hectares, with an approximate population of 220,000. Ballarat is its largest centre with just over 100,000 residents. Boasting a diverse geography of mountains, desert, forests, grasslands and wetlands the Region is named after the Grampians National Park, an ancient, mountainous landscape attracting large numbers of tourists.

The Region comprises the 11 local government areas of Ararat, Ballarat, Golden Plains, Hepburn, Moorabool and Pyrenees (Central Highlands) and Hindmarsh, Horsham, Northern Grampians, West Wimmera and Yarriambiack (Wimmera Southern Mallee).

This spans traditional lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung, Eastern Maar, Gunditjmara, Wadawurrung, Wurundjeri and Wotjobaluk (Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Jupagulk, Wergaia and Wotjobaluk) peoples.
