Halls Gap is hidden in the heart of Australia’s most spectacular wilderness region – the Grampians Gariwerd National Park. The town is set in the Fyans Valley at the foot of the of Wonderland and Mount William ranges and is the perfect place from which to explore the Grampians National Park.
The Grampians are one of Victoria’s most impressive natural attractions, popular with bushwalkers and holidaymakers seeking a mountain forest and lake environment. The Grampians span the western end of Victoria’s Great Dividing Range, which consists of soaring mountain peaks, rugged and lush bushland, rivers, waterfalls, and a number of large lakes. The Grampians National Park covers 167,000 hectares and is home to hundreds of species of native animal life. Spring time sees the area covered in colourful wildflowers, celebrated by the annual Grampians Wildflower and Art Show, while waterfalls flow at their peak at this time of year. A myriad of walking tracks exist in the area, many leading to spectacular lookouts over the park and surrounding ranges. Lake Bellfield, just a few kilometres south of Halls Gap, offers picnic areas, swimming and boating activities.
