As previous guests have said, this motel is comfortable (especially the beds!) and the rooms at the rear overlook the Grampians and cows grazing in the paddocks. Just ignore the 1970s decor, as the rooms are spotless and the owners are indeed a friendly, helpful couple! It is also peaceful as it is just a little further back from the small 'village' of cafés, ice-cream parlour and souvenir shops.
You can order a country-style breakfast in your room - with leaf tea in pots! - or walk to the nearby cafés. On the way, you will probably meet a kangaroo - or three!), maybe a wallaby and be serenaded by kookaburras! This is Australia! If you are taking young children to Halls Gap, you may want to check out Tripadvisor for advice on the adjacent Pinnacle apartments and motel, as it seems have very family oriented facilities.

Room Tip: The rooms at the rear of the motel have a relaxing view of the Grampians from your sliding door whi...

Really liked this room, which was comfortable and cozy during cold and rainy weather. The owners are both lovely and were able to give us some good advice on what to do. It was very practical to also be able to do our laundry. We were able to walk just a few minutes to where most of the restaurants and cafés are and were surrounded by kangaroos and birds like the kookaburra which makes the experience even better.

Compact and cosy rooms overlooking the mountains. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. Conveniently located close to town. The room was fairly basic but was appropriately priced. A DVD player was provided when we asked for one. DVDs are free to loan.

I suggest booking one of the rooms at the back, with a view of the paddocks and mountains. In the morning all the birds show up (galahs, kookaburra, magpies, wrens) and the magpie will eat from your hand, and come in the room if the door is left open.
The room itself was clean and quiet, heater worked well (middle of winter). A variety of pillows would have made it perfect. When we walked to dinner, we almost bumped into a kangaroo in the dark.
Friendly host, would go back.

Room Tip: Get one at the back overlooking the paddock and mountains.

Set well away from what little traffic actually goes through Halls Gap, this motel represents good value for money. The service provided was efficient and friendly without being at all obtrusive and the rooms are quite spacious. Luxurious they're not, but they are clean and well equipped and enjoy a nice outlook at the rear. No shortage of tame kangaroos around, but that's everywhere in Halls Gap, not just the Kookaburra.

Room Tip: All rooms are in a row to gain the view to the rear of the site, so there's no better ones that...

During our travel's in April 2013 we found ourselves at the The Grampians in Victoria, we did not book our accommodations in advance and stumbled across The Kookaburra Motor Lodge and so happy we did. The motel room was spacious, very clean, great beds, large bathroom and speedy wifi in room included, very reasonable price with cont breakfast. Very quiet, we had a unit facing the street as the ones backing on to the nature land were booked out, you would need to book these in advance as they will have great views of kangaroos and trees with so many birds. The managers were very friendly and knowledgable of the hikes, best times to go where, weather conditions up the top at all the lookouts. Would return there in a heartbeat, would have loved to stay more than one night - 2 days is just not enough for all the hikes and beauty.

Room Tip: Rug up warm !! we froze in the winds there.
