Dunkeld Arboretum

The Dunkeld Arboretum is a popular attraction you should check out whilst visiting the Grampians as it boasts a stunning view of wildflowers and an abundance of natural wildlife.

Within the Arboretum, you will see thornbills, waterfowls, kookaburras and many more. So if a quiet day out in nature is what you are looking for, then the Dunkeld Arboretum is the place for you.

Dunkeld Arboretum, Fishing & Walking Trail, Grampians

Take a stroll throughout the park and admire the river beds and paths that are surrounded by the old, majestic trees. While you take a walk, do a bit of birdwatching as you view many of the local species native to the Grampians. Dogs are permitted, as long as they remain on a leash.

After admiring nature, you can enjoy some other activities such as fishing where you will find an abundance of rainbow trout. But please note that you will require a fishing licence to fish in these lakes which can be obtained locally from the Dunkeld News Agency. After a spot of fishing, check out the labyrinth, the Old Saw Mill and the nearby wetlands.

A visit to Dunkeld would be incomplete without a relaxing stroll through the Arboretum, so make sure to take some time to visit on your trip to the Grampians.
