The Royal Mail Hotel expresses the vision of a local Dunkeld family, who acquired the humble bluestone inn in the 1980s and, together with their surrounding farmland, transformed it to become one of Victoria’s most celebrated regional escapes.
Conservation and community are central to this story. For generations, the residents of Dunkeld have watched the magical light of golden hour sweep over Mount Sturgeon, filled their tables with home-grown produce, and supported each other through thick and thin in a manner unique to regional life.
At the Royal Mail Hotel, our intention is to preserve these traditions and welcome others to enjoy everything we cherish dearly about Dunkeld. We tell our story, the Dunkeld story, through Food, Wine, People & Place.
