Breathtaking experiences

There are so many adventures to be had right on the doorstep of Dunkeld, with Mt Sturgeon and Mt Abrupt offering sensational views and a photo opportunity around every corner. 

Let's go touring

Hit the road

The options for a Sunday Drive are endless, but arguably one of the most spectacular drives in the state is the road connecting Dunkeld to Halls Gap. With the Serra Range on one side, and the Mt William Range on the other, and plenty of wildlife and picnic spots along the way, it's sure to make a great day out. On your return trip, why not go via the alternative route over Mirranatwa Gap and through the pastoral haven of the Victoria Valley.
