Comfort, privacy and stunning setting for couples.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property and setting only a short walk from good food and coffee in Halls Gap. Of all the places we’ve stayed, worldwide, this is the most thoughtfully appointed, with outstanding attention to detail. Very highly recommended.

Charming accomodation in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place to stay for a weekend getaway or longer. Close to everything, the perfect location. Near all the walks but close to the shops and restaurants to. Wildlife at the back door!

Love the place!!

  • 5 of 5

Everthing inside and outside was fantastic. A luxury, roomy accomodation with a very generous gift basket. All my needs were taken care of. Outside felt like I was part of the Grampians Ranges, with many different, beautiful birds in the surrounds. Next time, I'd like to stay longer. Thanks, Peter.

Perfect couples accomadation

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect couples place to stay. Set back off the main road with plenty of privacy. A wood fire in the lounge for those cool nights along with a couples spa in the bathroom, made this a great little getaway. The house has everything you'll need plus more. We'll be back.

Peaceful, with lots of wildlife right outside the windows

  • 5 of 5

Loved the woodfire and cathedral ceilings. The facilities and the views from every window were lovely, with visits from kangaroos, deer, crimson rosellas, kookaburras and lots of other birds in the surrounding trees.

Mountain views and wildlife

Halls Gap is a village in Victoria, Australia. It’s a gateway to Grampians National Park, known for its sandstone mountains, wildflowers and wildlife including echidnas and wallabies. Park trails lead to waterfalls like towering MacKenzie Falls and slender Silverband Falls. The Balconies lookout offers views of the Victoria Range, while Boroka Lookout is perched above Fyans Valley, with glimpses of Lake Bellfield.

Whether you visit for walking, sightseeing, wildflower spotting, rock climbing or relaxation, Halls Gap has everything you need – a wide range of, 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!
