Abstract/Summary Halls Gap and the Grampians generally have been the subject of several market research and planning studies in the past. The preparation of this master-plan was motivated by a need to weave together what might have been different threads of action related to infrastructure, business promotion and town planning. Its preparation also provided an opportunity to build a fresh consensus amongst the highly passionate and engaged Halls Gap community about the future of the town. The evidence base for this masterplan included a synthesis of previous research and planning effort, an appraisal of the policy, geographical and social context of Halls Gap and, most importantly, insights generated by the town community itself. Community engagement included a series of interviews plus two 'enquiry by design' workshops. All of the initiatives cited in the drawings embedded in this master-plan were inspired by, or directly nominated by, community members. The consultant team's job was to test these ideas for practicality and value taking into account relevant tourism research, the capacity of partners to co-invest and known financial and regulatory constraints. The team then framed a cohesive visual and verbal narrative to bind the initiatives within the three horizons framework.
