Spot wildlife from your room, enjoy easy access to southern walks in the Grampians, take a walk to the Dunkeld Arboretum and lake, or hop in the car for a short drive to one of Australia’s most picturesque golf courses – Grampians Golf Course.

The hotel is home to the acclaimed Wickens, headlined by Robin Wickens, the executive chef who has helmed the Royal Mail’s two-hatted Dining Room restaurant for years. Under Wickens’ lead the Royal Mail Kitchen Garden has increased in size and is now known as the most productive kitchen garden in Australia. The hotel’s laidback dining venue Parker Street Project ensures the hotel is still at the forefront of exciting farm-to-table regional produce.

With a 1.2-hectare kitchen garden, the largest of its type in Australia, the hotel sources up to 80% of its produce from its own gardens.

The Food & Drink – Daily breakfast, cellar and kitchen garden tour

Wake up to daily à la carte breakfast for two served at the Parker Street Project. Choose from a delicious cooked-to-order menu crafted with fresh, local ingredients like house-made sausages, eggs from the hotel’s free-range chickens and produce from the kitchen gardens.
