Halls Gap - Grampians Eco YHA and Sustainability

At Grampians Eco YHA, you’ll be greeted by the resident chickens, a cosy fireplace and equally toasty hospitality. Located on the outskirts of Grampians National Park, the area is a protected nature reserve absolutely brimming with unique flora and fauna - and we’re fully committed to protecting the diverse ecosystem in every little way we can. It’s why we earned the Eco certification for our sustainability initiatives!
