Dunkeld is the southern gateway to the Grampians National Park with panoramic views of Mount Sturgeon and Mount Abrupt. The Grampians Tourist Road connects Dunkeld with Halls Gap and offers magnificent views along the way. The road is a high risk area for unwanted wildlife encounters and motorists should take care and enjoy the views at reduced speed.
