YHA Grampians Eco (Halls Gap) and Sustainability

At YHA Grampians Eco (Halls Gap), you’ll be greeted by incredible surrounds, 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!
