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

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

Wander beyond the main street and explore Gerard Murphy Furniture, a fascinating timber workshop gallery with an extensive range of beautiful giftware and tableware crafted from a range of fine, sustainably-harvested Australian cabinet timbers. Art lovers will be delighted to discover hidden gems at Ros McArthur Art Studio in the Victoria Valley on the scenic country route from Dunkeld to Halls Gap.

The town is made for meandering with the beautiful Dunkeld Arboretum where you can explore a sandstone labyrinth and small lakes that are crossed by several bridges. For the more vigorous visitor, a hike up Mount Sturgeon (Wurgarri), Mount Abrupt (Mud-Dadjug) or the Piccaninny (Bainggug) affords a great view of the entire Southern Grampians range.
