Make the drive to Dunkeld for a meal of deceptively simple dishes at the Royal Mail Hotel, try traditional Aboriginal food with a contemporary twist at Brambuk, and call in at home-style cafes, coffee shops and bakeries throughout the region.

Gastronomic Grampians
Ensure an unforgettable gourmet experience at the Royal Mail Hotel in Dunkeld. Peek into the kitchen gardens before tasting the ingredients transformed in the final product accompanied by excellent local wines. A meal in the bistro with Mount Sturgeon looming is also worth drooling over.

Bushfoods and eating al fresco
Get a taste of traditional Aboriginal foods like kangaroo, birds, eggs, tortoises, fish, yam daisies, and wattle seeds, with a contemporary twist at Brambuk's Bushfoods Cafe.

Savour the exaggerated flavours of foods consumed al fresco in the scenic beauty of the Grampians region. Enjoy a barbeque with a view at the popular park in the heart of Halls Gap, or pack a hamper and enjoy the many picnic areas in the national park.

Regional food and wine
Call in at the home-style cafes, coffee shops and bakeries throughout the region. Drop into The Vines in Ararat to try the extensive range of regional food and wine products, Cafe Baghdad in Horsham, a quirky cafe that showcases artworks, or Darriwill Farm Cafe, Hamilton, with its accompanying provedore store.

Book a table Kookaburra Bar and Bistro in Halls Gap where the menus offer local wines and fresh local produce such as Western District lamb, freshwater fish and venison.
