About Halls Gap:   

The small township of Halls Gap with a population of 300 is situated in the Grampians National Park that bursts to life with tourists who come to explore the unique landscape. Words can’t describe this ancient and living landscape. It is also an easy drive to the larger townships of Stawell and Ararat.

A number of cafes and tourist shops can be found facing the grassy areas fronting Stony Creek, while the attractive Halls Gap Picnic Reserve is just across the road from the rest of the commercial centre. Lake Bellfield, just a few kilometres south of Halls Gap, offers picnic areas, swimming and boating activities. A variety of dining experiences are on offer from a family friendly hotel to sophisticated restaurants offering divine food matched with local wines.

Major social events occur on a monthly basis from jazz festivals and  art exhibitions to theatre and cycling, and, of course, a trip to the local zoo is a must.
