The Dunkeld Arboretum is a major highlight in town. Boasting of vibrant wildflowers and wildlife, this destination is a must-visit for anyone who loves nature. Some of the animals you may encounter here include kookaburras, waterfowls, and thornbills. A leisurely walk through the park will take you to quaint paths and riverbeds flanked by majestic old trees.

Mount Abrupt is one of the famous peaks of the Grampians. Situated near the Great Dividing Ranges, Mount Abrupt is a scenic hill range that is ideal for family-friendly activities but has some thrilling adventures. Its picturesque bushwalking trails can accommodate all age groups and fitness levels. For the thrill-seekers, rock climbing is a popular pastime here as well.

Complete your trip by staying a night or two at The Royal Mail Hotel; a luxurious accommodation complete with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Mouth-watering five-course meals, tasting menus, and some of the Grampians’ finest wines all await you here. Take in the breathtaking scenery by strolling at the hotel gardens, or invite your nearest and dearest for an intimate dinner.

The Royal Mail Hotel can also arrange for trips to Mount Sturgeon, as they operate a vast estate here. Visitors will be treated to wool production sights, a terrific opportunity to learn about how merino wool is created.
