Whether you visit for walking, sightseeing, wildflower spotting, rock climbing or relaxation, Halls Gap has everything you need – a wide range of accommodation options, retail shopping, galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants, and a lovely village feel that will make you feel so welcome you won’t want to leave.
Founded in 1841 by Charles Browning Hall, Halls Gap has matured into a modern tourism hub with its proximity to the natural attractions of the Grampians National Park a drawcard. Waterfalls, lookouts, bushwalking trails, lakes and sacred Indigenous sites are all on your doorstep, with many attractions just a short walk or drive away.
Halls Gap features a beautiful park with a large children’s playground and free barbecues, a fantastic solar-heated swimming pool with kids’ splash pad, and a visitor information centre staffed seven days a week. A supermarket, petrol station, ATMs, a post office and a chemist are all in town, and the Halls Gap Zoo is just around the corner. Brambuk – the National Park and Cultural Centre – will help you learn more about the rich Indigenous culture and history of the Grampians known as Gariwerd in local language.
Throughout the year Halls Gap hosts popular events including Victoria’s longest-running food and wine festival the Grampians Grape Escape, as well as art and craft events like Grampians Brushes, and music celebrations such as the Grampians Jazz and Blues Festival. And if you’re a wine connoisseur, many of our cafes, pubs and restaurants serve the local tipple, or you can take a short drive to visit cellar doors and talk to the winemakers themselves.
Halls Gap is at the very heart of the Grampians and the perfect spot to base yourself while in the region. And with so many friendly local businesses wanting to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, what are you waiting for? See you soon!
