Getting There

Halls Gap is around 3 hours from Melbourne via the Western Highway.

by car: Depending on where you start, but the simplest route from the city is to take the West Gate bridge to the Western Ring Road, heading towards Geelong.  Take the Deer Park Bypass and continue on the freeway to Ballarat then to Ararat.

At Ararat, you reach a large roundabout just as you come into town, and just after you cross the train tracks.  Take the first exit (left) on this to Barkly Street which is the main street leading into the town.

Keep following Barkly Street past all of the shops and restaurants and up the hill.  Just keep straight ahead on all the roundabouts and lights, this becomes the Ararat-Pomonal road and is signposted for Halls Gap.

Follow this to Moyston (the road bends sharply right) and continue through Pomonal – be careful for kangaroos in town and between Pomonal and Halls Gap especially.  About 10 minutes past Pomonal you come to a T intersection, turn left here and follow the road into Halls Gap.

From Halls Gap reset your trip meter at the Stony Creek bridge and continue on the main road, heading south.

Head down the main road passing the Kookaburra restaurant on the left and then later Grampians Furniture. About 200m later you’ll see “Silver Springs Rd” on the right. Keep going about 100m and take the next turn right past Silver Springs Rd, a minor road which looks like a driveway – watch for 2 white posts. This is about 1.5km from the bridge.

Cross the cycle track and then swing right, 20-22 Royston Rd is the next driveway on the left. Drive up to the back and either keep going around to the back of the house or park in front of the garage.
