Our host in the Bendigo B&B recommended Halls Gap as an overnight stay to break the journey to Warrnambool, and it proved to be great advice.
Halls Gap is a small village of about 600 people. It’s located at the northern entrance to a long valley running roughly south towards the coast. The first white settler to find it was Charles Browning Hall in 1841. He was looking for grazing land for his cattle, but how he found the narrow entrance to the valley is a mystery to me.
