    • wonderland walk

      Halls Gap Apr 28, 2015 at 1:14 AM

      I will be staying at the halls gap motel. ( I know I can walk up from Halls Gap, but it will be a bit too far for me)

      I want to start my walk from the wonderland car park, then down to halls gap on the front of the mountain path.

      Is the any way I can get a taxi or anything from the motel to the car park on morning?
      Thanks
