Halls Gap is a town in Victoria, Australia. It is located on Grampians Road, in the Grampians National Park, in the Northern Grampians Shire local government area. At the 2001 census, Halls Gap had a population of 430. Its chief industry is tourism, due to its location in the Grampians National Park. Some of the development is controversial. The aboriginal community lived in the area for many years before European settlement.

Halls Gap caters to almost every need: it boasts caf├ęs, gift stores, a variety of accommodation from camp sites to luxurious getaways, and a variety of quality restaurants.

Tours of the Grampians National Park inevitably begin in Halls Gap. Half-day and full-day tours are easily arranged. Recently a Bio-bus had been introduced by the backpackers association. A ‘green’ tour of major Park attractions can be arranged for their guests and for other ‘hononary’ backpackers.

Halls Gap is also home of Brambuk, the National Park & Aboriginal Cultural Centre where the Park information, Education Progammes, Bush Food and a Gift and Bookshop can be found.

Halls Gap has committed to a plastic bag free policy and the Tourism and Business Association has committed significant funds to produce hemp bag alternatives.

Centred around the town is the Wonderland Range, where you will discover one of the most popular sections of the Grampians with interesting and spectacular rock formations, canyons and viewpoints.

A network of sealed and gravel roads from the town lead you to scenic drives and a wealth of walking trails. A drive to Dunkeld, Wartook, Pomonal, Cavendish and other villages of the Grampians will richly reward.
