  • A 30 minute gentle walk on gentle slope one way will lead you to this cliff edge with spectacular view of the valley below and the mountain ranges beyond. There are some park benches along the way if ...  read more »
  • My best look out point at the grampians... Truly remarkable... Sunset was magnificent and majestic.. Must go back... Be very careful by the "jaws"... 
  • The Jaws of Death (now called The Balconies) is a spectacular rock formation that also offers stunning views through the valley below. The walk out is easy and reasonably flat. A must see when in the ...  read more »
  • I would suggest to anyone staying in Halls Gap to avoid this place at all costs. The food was very expensive, so we expected something good. What we got would be considered poor even by dodgy pub standards. Meager portions, limp and disgusting salad, unexceptional atmosphere. Stay away.
  • It would be funny if it weren't true. This was the worst experience we have ever had in a restaurant. Let me tell you what went wrong; Started with not enough printed menus when we turned up (restaurant was only half full). I had a mediterranean frittata for entree - which was quite good, but literally finger width. It came on limp and stale lettuce, as did my wifes calamari. Mains were garlic prawns, which had absolutely no garlic flavour, and a rare porterhouse steak, which came out well done, with a peppercorn sauce, that was also tasteless. Dessert was an individual serve chocolate pudding (clearly store bought) that was dry on top and burnt on the bottom, and an ice cream sundae, which was acceptable. The service - we got asked for a drink at the start, and not again for the night, they ran out of a number of items on the fixed menu, when the restaurant was only half full, and they left a poor waiter on his first shift to deal with everything. A female waiter was there at the start, but hardly appeared again to assist him. Without fail, every single table had a problem with their food. Luckily we enjoyed each others company, as we had a chuckle about how bad the experience was, and the shame of it is that the building is perfect for a fine dining experience, if only it were in capable hands. Never again, at least not in current ownership
