Tucked away in the heart of the Grampians sits Halls Gap, a small village half an hour’s journey from the busy town centres of Stawell and Ararat. And, as many of our Goldstream RV owners have told us, Halls Gap is a popular holiday destination for families all year round.
The rugged ranges of the Grampians make the perfect place for families to go bush walking, mountain climbing, fishing, swimming, canoeing and, for the more adventurous, abseiling and hang gliding. All camp sites within the area are regularly visited by kangaroos, koalas, echidnas and a great range of local bird life.
Halls Gap is a short distance off the Western Highway, some three hours drive from Melbourne and about four hours from Adelaide. The tranquil setting makes a great base from which to explore the whole Grampians area, which features incredible rock formations, superb scenery, ancient rock paintings, and beautiful water features.
