Dunkeld - Places to See

Small township at the southern end of the Grampians
Dunkeld is a small rural town of some 450 people located at the foot of the Grampians and at the southern tip of Grampians National Park. It is 259 km west of Melbourne via the Glenelg Highway. The surrounding landscape is dominated by Mt Abrupt (827 m) and Mt Sturgeon (548 m) which were both named by Major Mitchell who was the first known European in the area. Mitchell camped for three days at the foot of Mt Sturgeon in 1836, during his Australia Felix expedition.
