Dunkeld

At the foot of Mount Sturgeon, the southern tip of the Grampians and the Great Dividing Range, is the village of Dunkeld.

Dunkeld´s charming main street features shops, cafes and the Royal Mail Hotel which is regularly voted one of the best dining destinations in Australia.

This beautiful town has a picturesque Arboretum with a walking track that meanders past hundreds of trees including many giant red gums.

Central to the area is the sandstone labyrinth and small lakes that are crossed by several bridges. For the more vigorous visitor, a hike up Mount Sturgeon, Mount Abrupt or the Piccaninny affords a great view of the entire Southern Grampians range.

Grampians Eco Tours offer half day and full day tours that connect the visitor with a tailored experience. Reward your mind and body with time out at the Griffins Hill Health Retreat, focussing on yoga and healthy food. For the not so energetic, there is an abundance of scenic drives available.
