If you love to eat out for breakfast or brunch, several cafes in town offer a wide variety of morning dishes. Lunch is covered by those same cafes and a bakery, or why not grab your own provisions from the supermarket and head off into the bush or to one of our lookouts for a picnic?
Whether you like to eat light or hearty for dinner, our hotels and restaurants offer varied menus with traditional pub grub through to vegetarian and vegan dishes, children’s meals and dishes for special dietary requirements. Feeding your family on a budget is easy here too with plenty of accommodation options with fully equipped kitchens and barbecues, or you can use the free barbies in our lovely, centrally located park.
Halls Gap is in the heart of the Grampians wine region, which features some of the oldest and most celebrated vineyards and wineries in Australia. Award-winning shiraz is the region’s signature variety and many established wine makers are successfully experimenting and creating new varietals, many that can be tasted at dozens of cellar doors throughout the region. All these are within easy drive of Halls Gap, so using our town as a base for your wine-tasting holiday is perfect.
You’ll also find an impressive selection of local wine on menus in Halls Gap, with all our eating establishments stocking a variety of local vinos to try with your meal.
The Grampians region is becoming a great location for local artisan producers who grow meats, pulses, olives and herbs, and produce olive oil, cheese, free-range eggs, honey, relishes, dukkah and jams. Some of these have their own farm shops open to the public, with some also available for retail purchase in stores in Halls Gap or at local markets.
And if you’re keen on sampling all the food and drink we have to offer in one convenient weekend, don’t forget the Grampians Grape Escape, a two-day food and wine event held on the Halls Gap oval in May each year. With dozens of producers, wine-makers, chefs and food creators all in the one spot, it’s the perfect weekend getaway.
