At the foot of Mt. Sturgeon, the southern tip of the Grampians and the Great Dividing Range you will find the booming little town of Dunkeld. Named after a town in the Scottish Grampians, Dunkeld has enjoyed a stellar revival in the last 15 years.
The attraction to Dunkeld is instant, the well kept main street is dotted with shops, the stand-out feature being the Royal Mail Hotel where linen lined tables serve gourmet meals as well as high quality pub fare. Gourmet Traveller magazine voted its wine list as the best in Australia. The huge list includes local wines from the Henty, Grampians and Pyrenees wineries.
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 highights of its own.
You will find an Arbouretum at the end of a pleasant walk along the small creek through the town. This well loved sanctuary has been cleverly planned. For the more vigourour visitor, a hike up Mt. Sturgeon, Mt. Abrupt or the Piccaninny gives the visitor a great view of the entire Southern Grampians range.
The history of this fascinating district is well documented at the Dunkeld Museum. Dunkeld is quite simply spoilt with accommodation options.
Without doubt the most colorful day of the year belongs to the Dunkeld Races that have quickly become famous around the state of Victoria. Horses hooves thunder past you under the impressive peaks of the mountains.
