Nestled among native gardens at the Southern tip of the famous Grampians National Park, the hotel is in the perfect location for guests to make the most of the area. 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.

The Hotel – Award-winning gourmet escape

The award-winning Royal Mail Hotel has put Dunkeld and The Grampians on the map as a leading Victorian food and wine destination. Awarded two hats by The Age Good Food Guide (2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018), Best Regional Accommodation, Best Regional Restaurant of the Year, Gold at the Australian Tourism Awards and a 2019 TAA Award of Excellence, the hotel has become a firm Victorian favourite.

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. Paired with a world-leading wine collection that was carefully curated over 40 years and recently awarded Best Hotel Wine List worldwide by Fine Wine magazine (UK), the Royal Mail Hotel offers an unparalleled dining experience set beside the breathtaking Grampians National Park.

The Room – Views of The Grampians, late 1pm checkout and complimentary bottle of wine

Sleep in and enjoy your time in this scenic part of Australia with a late 1pm checkout and the most fitting souvenir – a complimentary bottle of wine to take home with you or enjoy on your veranda.

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.

Enjoy a cellar tour of the Royal Mail Wine Cellar led by expert sommeliers showcasing highlights of the collection and providing insight into how the collection is developed and managed. The 45-minute tour also includes a comparative ‘tasting of the day’ where local wines will be compared with internationals of the same variety and style.

Discover the paddock-to-plate concept with a tour of the Royal Mail Kitchen Garden – featured on ABC TV's 'Gardening Australia'. The hotel chefs will teach you about the organic practices used to grow over 400 types of fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices and nuts, and how the garden dictates what goes into the menu.

Guests who wish to dine at Wickens will receive 15% off food; why not treat yourself to the five-course chef's degustation menu?
