Ararat - Cities, Towns and Localities
Ararat is the eastern gateway to the magnificent Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park. To the north are the rugged Pyrenees Ranges and picturesque Elmhurst, whilst to the east lies Buangor with its historic Cobb & Co coach-house, and close to the scenic Mount Langi Ghiran and Mount Cole.

Strategically located on the Western Highway, just 200 km north west of Melbourne, Ararat is the hub of western Victoria, with rail and road links to Geelong, Portland, as well as western and north western Victoria. There is also an aerodrome.

Ararat is the only town in Australia to be founded by the Chinese. Rich in colonial history with a wide variety of activities and attractions to choose from including the famous J Ward asylum for the criminally insane, now a working museum, to a pleasant stroll through the Alexandra Gardens, a botanical garden which features a walk-through fernery, Orchid House, lake and Japanese Island.

The area is also well known for the magnificent wines produced along the Pyrenees wine trail.
