Currently ranked no. 1 in TripAdvisor for the whole of the Grampians. Gariwerd Motel is the perfect location for your visit to the gorgeous Grampians. Gariwerd is located just 700m from the centre of Halls Gap, and the whole of the Grampians is yours to explore from this pretty little base camp. A short walk into the centre of Halls Gap gets you fabulous food and coffee at Live Fast Cafe, grab a pie at the bakery, or perhaps an ice cream at the famous Coolas Ice Creamery. Or go just a few hundred metres further down the road have a wonderful meal at the Kookaburra Hotel. Of course the real appeal of the Grampians lies outside of Halls Gap. It’s just a 12 minute drive to the Sundial Carpark, and the entrance to the very popular walk to the Pinnacle. And the stunning MacKenzie Falls walk is just 23 minutes away. If golf is your thing, you’re just 2.3km from the Halls Gap Golf Course. Or if you prefer your fairways to be shorter, and you only want to carry a putter, Grampians Adventure Golf is just 6 minutes drive away. When you’re too hot from hiking it’s good to know that you are only a short 5mins walk to the local solar heated swimming pool (open during the summer months only). The local pool even has a little water park for the little ones. Or you could walk the extra 25mins and end up swimming in natural rock pools like the locals do in the beautifully named Venus Baths. Did we mention the free continental breakfast for all our standard and garden view rooms? It’s a great way to start your day exploring the Grampians. And you can relax here at the end of the day too, taking advantage of our free guest kitchenette, free BBQ’s, free WiFi, and free outdoor fire-pits (weather conditions and total fire bans permitting). Gariwerd Motel is friendly, environmentally focused place to stay in the heart of a beautiful place, surrounded by amazing things to see and do. Come and see why we are the number 1 motel/hotel in the whole of the Grampians according to TripAdvisor!
