This motel is a neat & tidy and the rooms are small but cosy it has everything you need. It is in walking distance to the town centre. It's ideal if you have over seas visitors as the back rooms open up onto a wide open space with hundreds of kangaroos and mountains. Happy travels :)

We stayed here for one night. We had lots of walks planned so we didnt stay in the room much. It was comfortable, basic and clean. We had the back cabins, we had great views. Beds were comfortable. Close walk to the main area. We walked past several wild life.. deers, kangaroos, cows. I would recommend this to anyone that has lots of activities planned and do not want to spend much time in their rooms. Like I said.. very basic but did the job for us as we checked in, went on our walks and came back 6 hours later.. and out for dinner after..

Room Tip: Try for the back cabins facing the mountains.. cows..

My wife and I visit the Grampians at least 3-4 times a year and ever since we found The Kookaburra Lodge we don't stay any where else.
It is in a very central but quite part of Halls Gap with easy access to all shops, restaurants and local pool etc. Surrounded by beautiful views and wildlife at the rear of our room.
It is a very affordable place to stay but most important is the cleanliness and welcoming environment you receive on every visit. The owners have a wealth of knowledge at hand regarding all walks and surrounding attractions/current events of which is very handy.

Stayed for one night and we were very happy. Rooms were basic but this was outlined when I booked, however they were comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed. We stay in halls gap for a night often and these owners were one of the nicest we have come across. Great location and view. We will be back, many thanks from the Wards, horsham.

It is an older style motor lodge but still very comfortable. The room is spacious with a very nice view from the back. The owner was away when we visited but his friends who were standing in were extremely helpful and nice! It is also walking distance from a very terrific breakfast/lunch cafe (Livefast) and a restaurant(Quarry - do try their schnitzel nights on Wed & Fri).

With the temperature outside 8 degrees, we were very grateful for the heated blankets and electric heater at Kookaburra Lodge, our overnight stay in the mountains where we were the only guests.

The lodge is surrounded by kangaroos and kookaburras and close to the centre making access to shops, cafés and bars a short walk.

Fittings and services are quite basic, but you would struggle to find better in Halls Gap.
