The Grampians Eco YHA hostel was built with the environment in mind proving a comfortable night doesn’t have to cost the earth! Environmental additions include solar hot water, reverse cycle fans, waste water management and rainwater collection for the gardens. Guests are also welcome to use the free range eggs from the resident chickens when available, and all kitchen scraps become chook food, helping to cut down waste.
Hostel facilities include free on-site car and coach parking, two large fully equipped kitchens and two guest lounges with wood fire heaters for the winter months. There is also a TV room, free Wifi Hot Spot (Wifi Plus option also available) and laundry facilities. Many of the rooms have private balconies, with views of the Grampians National Park. Relax outdoors with the local kangaroos who make daily appearances, other local wildlife include an abundance of birds, furry wallabies, emus and possums.
The Grampians National Park is home to Victoria’s best rock-climbing, and a great place to try abseiling, hiking, cycling and canoeing.

Nearby Halls Gap Zoo offers the chance to see over 140 native and exotic animals up close and Baroka Lookout, The Balconies and Reeds Lookout are the perfect place to soak up the stunning natural surrounds.
