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 - we’re committed to protecting the ecosystem in every little way we can. It’s why we earned the Eco certification!

 

YHA Sustainability - Energy

 Energy reduction:

  •  Low energy lighting: used throughout the hostel
  • Solar hot water system: Our solar hot water system uses an electrical boost and was entirely funded by the Sustainable Hotels Fund
YHA Sustainability - Waste

  Waste minimisation:

  •  Recycling stations all around the hostel, including compost for the chickens and worm-farm!
  • Herb garden on-site: Spice up your life with free herbs
  • Chickens on-site: Enjoy fresh eggs from the hostel chickens
YHA Sustainability - Water

Water conservation:

  •  Rainwater tanks: ‘cause who needs to flush with drinking water?!
  • Greywater recycling: keeping our garden happy without wasting a drop
  • Water efficient taps and showers: they’re 4 stars! (WELS)
  • Dual-flush toilets: #efficient
YHA Sustainability - Social

  Social Sustainability 

  • Planting native gardens: happy plants, happy wildlife!
  • Community initiatives: Clean Up Australia Day, helping plan a sustainable hike in the Grampians National Park, donating unclaimed lost property, and raising money for local wildlife carers… we love supporting our community.
