New uniform property signage in Halls Gap has been well received by operators and visitors alike.

An initiative of Northern Grampians Shire Council, the signage is provided free of charge to businesses outside the CBD where the speed limit is under 100 km/h.

Councillor Jason Hosemans said the signs simplified property identification for tourists and for emergency services.

“It’s pleasing to see this new consistency in signage in Halls Gap. It’s been a big issue in the town for some time now so it’s good to have an outcome that a majority of the operators are happy with,” Cr Hosemans said. 

Josephina McDonald, owner of Halls Gap Lakeside Tourist Park, said the signs were easily recognisable and useful in a town with so many accommodation providers.

“Halls Gap has so many places to stay and there really is something for everyone. The new signs are definitely helping to send people in the right direction,” Mrs McDonald said.

“In addition to that, they’re helping to draw attention to some of our hidden gems, even for people who live in Halls Gap and know the area well.”  

Council is now taking expressions of interest for another round of signs. Businesses wanting more information on the scheme or who wish to register to to take part should contact Shelly Chalmers on 5358 0504 or
