Halls Gap - Grampians Eco YHA

Things to do in Halls Gap - Grampians Eco YHA

The ultimate outdoor adventure getaway, the Grampians is perfect for those looking to get back to nature and experience the great outdoors. Stay in quaint Halls Gap, the gateway town to the Grampians. 


The Grampians has fantastic one day and multi day hiking trails for hikers of all levels of experience and has numerous look out points with stunning views of the Grampians and Halls Gap. There are also a multitude of waterfalls, rivers and lakes to marvel at and relax by.


If you're after a shot of adrenaline coursing through your veins, there are plenty of opportunities to go rock climbing (the Grampians is one of the best rock climbing areas in Australia), abseiling, mountain biking and riding a quad bike on a tour. For a slower change of pace, there's also horseback riding, kayaking and canoeing. 


No visit to Halls Gap is complete without checking out the Brambuk Cultural Centre. The centre showcases the area's extensive indigenous history with the region itself having the largest number of rock art sites in Southern Australia.


The region creates some delicious local produce that can be found at cafes and restaurants in Halls Gap, so after a long day adventuring, relax at one of the many places to eat in town and sample it all. You can't go past Coolas Ice Creamery for some of their tasty home made ice cream!
