Halls Gap - Grampians Eco YHA

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!
