Royal palate

A destination in itself, the restaurant sources fresh produce locally and the onsite accommodation comes with sweeping views of the Southern Grampians.

View from above

Hike up Mount Sturgeon, Mount Abrupt or the Piccaninny and be rewarded with sweeping views of the Southern Grampians range. Opt for a self-guided tour or join Grampians Eco Tours for a half or full-day jaunt.

Wander through the Arboretum's walking track and be inspired by native flora and serene billabongs shaded by river red gum and stringy back forests. Complete your journey with a quiet moment taking in the view of Mount Abrupt at sunset.

Pencil it in

Play a round on the greens at the Grampians Golf Course or visit in time for the Discover Dunkeld Festival in October – a celebration of the town's history, culture, food and wine. The Dunkeld Cup in November is another great chance to see the town come together.
