At the foot of Mount Sturgeon, the southern tip of the Grampians and the Great Dividing Range you will find the booming little town of Dunkeld and the Dunkeld & Grampians Visitor Information Centre.
Dunkeld was named after a town in the Scottish Grampians and has enjoyed a stellar revival in the last 15 years.
Dunkeld is well and truly on the tourist map now as the starting point for many who look to spend time in the Grampians, but Dunkeld has many highlights of its own.
You will find an Arboretum at the end of a pleasant walk along the small creek through town or for the more vigorous visitor, a hike up Mount Sturgeon, Mount Abrupt or the Piccaninny will provide great views of the entire Southern Grampians Range.
Dunkeld has a fascinating history documented at the Dunkeld Museum, a must visit to anyone coming to Dunkeld.
Dunkeld is quite simply spoilt with accommodation options. From the community Caravan Park to the ultra-modern eco-Lodges, traditional Bed and Breakfast to log cabins. It is no wonder more people are choosing to stay in Dunkeld as a base for a Grampians adventure.
Activities nearby include arts and crafts, birdwatching, bush walking, dining, historic sites, museums, native animal spotting, open gardens, photography, scenic drives, wine tasting, events and festivals.
Events such as a Dunkeld Races in November, Serra Terror in June and Discover Dunkeld, 'A Mosaic of Experiences' during October.
