Halls Gap: The Heart of the Grampians
The small town of Halls Gap lies at the heart of the Grampians. This magical region is home to stunning sandstone peaks, lush forest and an amazing display of wildlife. Explore the town then step out into a cornucopia of natural wonders.
Halls Gap is situated on the banks of Fyans Creek and shadowed by the Wonderland and Mount William ranges. It stands aside the glorious Grampians National Park, one of the State’s finest. There are a wide selection of bushwalking trails, scenic lookouts and cascading waterfalls just a short distance away. Take a stroll or dedicated hike, hire a bicycle or join a tour to experience the most striking of national parks. More active types might even try their hand at abseiling, rock climbing or canoeing.
Fishing is popular at Fyans Creek, and nearby Bellfield and Lonsdale lakes. And fish certainly aren’t the only wildlife species around. You may be lucky enough to spot emus, kangaroos, wallabies, possums and a wide range of birdlife. Animal encounters are guaranteed when you visit Halls Gap Zoo, the largest regional zoo in Victoria. There are close to 150 species in residence, including native treasures and international favourites such as pandas, meerkats, monkeys, and of course cuddly koalas.
To discover the flora, fauna and the rich indigenous history of the region, make sure to visit the Brambuk National Park and Cultural Centre or take a tour to discover the wonderful and unique Aboriginal rock art in the Grampians. And indulge your palate with a trip to a nearby winery such as The Gap Vineyard.
Halls Gap is a well-equipped tourist centre, with shops, restaurants and ample accommodation options including camp sites, motels, hotels, chalets, cabins and holiday apartments.
