The Dunkeld Festival of Music is where those interested in fine wine and chamber music can come together to enjoy both in the beautiful Grampians region.

The festival is held over three days in Dunkeld, a small town located south of the Grampians region, and just 20 minutes east from Hamilton.

    • Hi Patrina,

      I have checked the Australian String Quartet’s website and it states the dates of the 2019 festival is on 5–7 April and 7–9 April.

      There is no information listed in regards to ticket pricing but if the $70 from 2018 is any indication, you’d expect them to either be the same or slightly increased.

      If you require any more information, please give them a call on 1800 040 444, or email mrichards@asq.com.au.


  • How do I book for the Dunkeld Music Festival 2018? This would be our first time.
    Friends from Adelaide who go every year have recommended it .We have stayed several times at the Royal Mail Hotel enroute to or from Melbourne and Adelaide.
    We are great music too.
    Kind regards Debelle

    • Hi Pamela,

      Thanks for reaching out to us. It looks like the dates have been confirmed for 2018 as Friday the 13th – Tuesday the 17th of April 2018.

      The organisers use a bit of an ‘old school’ system where you can fill out a booking form and then send via email or mail to the organisers. You can find the page for 2017 here, hopefully they update the new forms for the 2018 festival on the same web page. Otherwise, you can register your interest with them by calling 1800 040 444.

      As for accommodation, you can browse through the options for Dunkeld here. If you are after the Royal Mail Hotel try the link here. It looks like some nights are booked out over that weekend, so book fast if you want to stay there again.

      Kind regards,
