Important Update – 16 February 2024
A few days ago bushfire swept from the National Park over the ridge and attacked the nearby town of Pomonal. Halls Gap was fortunately upwind from the fires, and was not affected.
Over 30 houses were destroyed including a number owned by friends of ours who are now homeless. We have made the difficult decision to take Royston Lodge off the market temporarily so we can extend the use of our home to people in our local community who are in need.
A number of bookings during February and March will be cancelled. We are sorry to disrupt your holiday plans but hope you can appreciate the severity of the disaster. We will contact you individually if your booking is affected and will try to help you find alternative accommodation.
