Be inspired by fine art, fine dining, and the stunning twin peaks of mounts Sturgeon and Abrupt in Dunkeld, gateway to the southern Grampians.
Indulge in a sumptuous lunch or dinner and find out why Dunkeld's Royal Mail Hotel was awarded three chefs hats in this year's The Age Good Food Guide. Taste the flavours of the Grampians through a creative menu incorporating fresh, locally grown produce and signature regional wines.
Art in nature
Immerse yourself in Dunkeld's thriving arts community at one of the numerous local galleries or the museum. The impressive setting of Dunkeld inspired many early Australian painters, including Louis Buvelot, Eugene von Guerard and Nicholas Chevalier. Track down their works in regional galleries throughout Victoria.
Admire nature's own canvas, a profusion of wildflowers and nearby billabongs shaded by river red gum and stringybark forests that can be found in the Arboretum. Enjoy the beauty of Mt Sturgeon and of Mt Abrupt, the highest peak in the southern Grampians, by foot or by bicycle.
Spring in the Grampians
Celebrate the town's history, art, culture, food and wine at the annual Discover Dunkeld event in October. Get along to the Dunkeld Cup in November and enjoy a great day of country horse racing.
