Inhale the fresh air of the Grampians and soak in the stunning natural attractions and their rich history. Experience the walking tracks and wildlife in the breathtaking landscape and enjoy tasting local wine and viewing unique art galleries.
We sat down with Carly Flecknoe, owner of Harvest Halls Gap to find out the best spots in the Grampians. At a young age, her fondest memories were learning to cook at her nana’s kitchen bench. Harvest Halls Gap first began operating in September 2015 and it’s aim was and still is to provide a café, provedore and accommodation that shines a light on the bounty of beautiful produce available within the Grampians.
