We just spent three nights at the Kookaburra. Stayed in one of the back rooms with nice rural views. Room was clean and probably the only down side was that there was no extractor fan in the bathroom which meant that everything got wet from the steam but the hosts were there with extra towels on demand and Peggy even...

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 :)

Close walk to the main area. We walked past several wild life.. deers, kangaroos, cows. I would recommend this to anyone that...

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...

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...

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...

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 motel, workable wifi, clean and tidy. The water heater doesn't open up- water goes in the same way it comes out, through the spout. Took me a while to figure it out. Heated sheets. Cosy place for the night while exploring halls gap!

The Kookaburra Motel is a very basic motel unit, nothing fancy but OK. Well located at the back of the main shopping area of Halls Gap. It is quiet & a short walk to the shops. The whole Halls Gap experience could be improved as could the motel.
