Scenic drive? Unique destination? Great food, relaxing atmosphere and friendly service? Check all these boxes and visit the Wander Inn in the Wartook Valley.
Nestled on the edge of the Grampians National Park, the Wander Inn is a perfect spot to break for lunch or dinner. The mud brick building has an ambience all of its own, with brick paved floors throughout and magnificent exposed timber beams. The enormous open fireplace is sure to be roaring during winter, and established gardens offer a peaceful outdoor experience on sunny winter days.
The Wander Inn is perfect for lunch if you are staying in Halls Gap - take the drive on Mt Victory Rd “over the mountain” and enjoy the spectacular scenery. Visit the picturesque waterfalls on the sunny side of the Grampians – Burrong Falls, Beehive Falls, Fish Falls or the iconic Mackenzie Falls – and “Wander Inn” for a refreshing milkshake.
Currently on display at the Wander Inn is a collection of works by Australian wildlife artist Pam Thoday. Her beautiful pastels of native animals and plants are appreciated by locals and visitors alike.
