Blue Ridge Retreat is perfectly set up as a romantic adults only couples escape. We pride ourselves on providing a squeaky clean, smoke free villa where guests can totally relax in a peaceful natural environment. Cuddle up on the comfy leather lounges by the cosy gas log fire, soak away your cares in the huge sunken spa, or relax on the huge elevated deck and enjoy watching the passing wildlife. Huge extra height windows allow you to view the stars from the spa and there are no street lights to dim the view of the night sky.
We are very proud of our beautiful villa and hope that you will fall in love with it too. We pride ourselves on cleanliness and comfort and are passionate about this spectacular part of Victoria. Within a short drive you can experience stunning lookouts and rushing waterfalls and you never know what will be passing. We have seen kangaroos, wallabies, emu, deer, echidnas and a multitude of native birds while lazing on the deck. The township offers several restaurants and cafes so you are sure to find a favourite place and just sitting on the boardwalk of the Stoney Creek Stores which follow the creek around the hub of Halls Gap is an experience in itself.
Halls Gap is nestled in a spectacular setting between two mountain ranges of the Grampians National Park. Wildlife abounds in this natural setting and you are assured of sighting lots of native animals during your stay. Halls Gap is a small tourist village with several restaurants and cafes, gift shops and basic supplies. It is the stepping off point for exploring the scenic Grampians area, by road, on foot, or via guided tours. We recommend a visit to the National parks Office and Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre for lots of advice on what to see. and perhaps sample some of the Aboriginal bush tucker themed cafe items while enjoying the view from the deck.
