Halls Gap Caravan Park – A Review

October 4, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

Halls Gap Caravan Park, situated in the centre of the Halls Gap township, was our home away from home for a week long family get away. Nestled in the Fyans Valley at the base of the Wonderland and Mount William ranges, Halls Gap, some 3 hours from Melbourne, is a popular destination for those wishing to explore the wonders of the Grampians National Park.

With self contained cabins and a mix of powered and unpowered sites, Halls Gap Caravan Park provides a range of accommodation options  while also being within easy walking distance of a range of local shops, cafe/restaurants, visitor centres and most importantly a plethora of walking tracks ranging from the easy to the challenging.

Choosing a powered site opposite the aptly named Stony Creek we set up our Customline Camper while the kids fossicked for firewood for the nearby communal fire pit.

Amenities at the Halls Gap Caravan Park are basic but serviceable and clean, although by the end of the day the floors of the toilet block were quite muddy. The showers were hot and offered plentiful amounts of water which was greatly appreciated after a days treking the Grampians. The camp kitchen consisted of 2 BBQ hot plates (remember to bring $1 coins to operate), microwave, sink (perfect for washing the dishes), fridge, table and chairs and a well used toaster and electric stove. Unlike other campgrounds there was not a tv/games room. Other facilities include a volleyball court, basket ball ring and use (at a fee) of the nearby Halls Gap Swimming Pool (which was closed when we stayed).

In general the layout of the Halls Gap Caravan Park is such that there are two distinct sections situated on either side of the Stony Creek and in general the sites are laid out amongst trees which in summer would provide ample shade.

Stony Creek, which as its name suggests is full of river stones offered the kids many hours of activities from building a stone dam to a bath and on those hot summer days would be the ultimate refuge.

Other options for camping in Halls Gap include:

  •  the Big 4 caravan park which is, as one would expect, a resort offering high standard facilities and
  • the Halls Gap Lakeside Tourist Park situated alongside the massive dam wall of Lake Bellfield and has a wood heated unground swimming pool.

However, for us the selling points of the Halls Gap Caravan Park were:

  • situated opposite the Halls Gap shops while the Big 4 and Lakeside Tourist Park are both situated some distance from the township and would generally require the use of car to access the town,
  • the fact that many of the walks start at the camp ground so once again no need to use the car,
  • free fire pits to use when the other camping options generally require payment, and
  • Stony Creek, which is nature at its best.

Halls Gap Caravan Park, while not having the bells and whistles of the competition was our choice and after staying there for a week we were certainly glad of our choice.
